BENEFITING: Back on My Feet
ORGANIZER: Back on My Feet
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Dear family and friends,
It's official – I'll be running the NYC Marathon this fall to raise money for Back on my Feet! Back on My Feet helps individuals experiencing homelessness transform their lives through running, community support and essential employment and housing resources.
Back on my Feet combines my lifelong love of running with a community that inspires me. Although I'm typically not a morning person, our 5:45AM runs never fail to wake me up and are often the highlight of my day. We meet 3 times a week in the morning to run, laugh, and grow together. As a Back on my Feet team leader, I help facilitate morning runs and motivate my team members.
Back on My Feet looks beyond backgrounds and focuses on our shared human experiences—the innate desire to feel recognized and supported, the need for goals and a way to accomplish them. No matter our circumstances, Back on My Feet shows that something as seemingly simple as running can strengthen individuals, build communities and transform lives.
Please join me in my journey to train for the NYC Marathon and raise $3000 for Back on My Feet NYC. For every $1 donated to Back on my Feet, nearly $2.50 goes back into the local community. Donations to Back on my Feet help fund educational support, job training, and housing resources.
Thank you in advance for your support,
