ORGANIZER: Back on My Feet
EVENT DATE: Nov 06, 2016
Thanks for checking out my fundraising page!
I'm excited to be running the NYC Marathon. It is one of the most famous and celebrated marathons in the world!
But I'm more excited to have the opportunity to fundraise for Back on My Feet NYC. I started running with BoMF about the time I moved to NYC nearly a year ago, and they are to credit for any major landmark I've seen in this city—Grant’s Tomb, The Hamilton Grange/Estate, the Hudson Riverway, Yankee Stadium, the Queensborough, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Maj Deegan, Kennedy, and GW Bridges, Randalls Island, Times Square, Rockefeller Center, and, soon, the most famous Notorious B.I.G. murals in Brooklyn (!!!!).
But aside from checking items off my tourist bucket list, I've met some amazing and inspirational people, non-Res and residents alike. It takes a pretty special tribe to get up at 5am, several times a week, in any type of weather, to tackle NYC on foot together.
By choosing to fundraise for Back on My Feet NYC, I hope to help raise critical awareness and funds to make a difference in the lives of our members. Back on My Feet helps individuals experiencing homelessness transform their lives through running. I'll train alongside my fellow BoMF NYC members. And together, mile by mile, we can make a difference.
