Run with Back on My Feet!

Back on My Feet http://dc.backonmyfeet.org

Can running with those experiencing homelessness really change your life? Come find out. 

Back on My Feet recruits members at homeless and residential facilities across the country and begins with a member's commitment to run three days a week in the early morning.  After 30 days in the program, members with 90% attendance earn the opportunity to move into the second phase of the program called Next Steps, which provides education, employment and housing opportunities.

Our members don’t accomplish this regimen alone.  They do it alongside the support of volunteer runners like you.

What’s the Commitment? Volunteers meet in the early morning at one of our locations and run between one and five miles with our members. Back on My Feet sees different physical abilities among members so we encourage all runners, joggers and walkers to become a part of our growing community. We run every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, but the desired volunteer commitment is once a week. If you fall in love with the team (which, we think you will) then join us as often as you'd like.

You'll need to attend an orientation prior to volunteering and sign up to do so here: http://dc.backonmyfeet.org/dc-run-with-us
