Operating in 11 major cities coast-to-coast, Back on My Feet recruits members at homeless and residential facilities and begins with a commitment to run three days a week. The second phase of the program, Next Steps, provides educational support, job training programs, employment partnership referrals and housing resources. Since 2007, Back on My Feet has served more than 5,500 individuals experiencing or at risk of homelessness and engaged more than 100,000 volunteers and supporters. Members have run a collective 500,000 miles and obtained more than 3,500 jobs and homes. Every $1 invested in Back on My Feet returns nearly $2.50 to the local community through increased economic output and cost savings. Through our innovative program, Back on My Feet proves that there is hope, that individuals can achieve things they never thought possible and that there are people who will support them along the way.

We are excited to join 3,500+ participants and run the 32nd Levi's Presidio 10! Funds raised will support bringing the impactful Back on My Feet program to the Bay area. Our program is set to launch in November 2016 during National Hunger and Homelessness Awareness week.
