Back on My Feet is dedicated to creating independence and self-sufficiency within the homeless and other underserved populations by first engaging them in running as a means to build confidence, strength, and self-esteem.
We combine our passion for running with compassion for those individuals who are experiencing homelessness to create a program that acts as a stepping-stone for all of the rest of life’s meaningful accomplishments. We run alongside our teammates in the hopes that our support and friendship will enable them not just to complete a mile or finish a race, but to also set and reach all other kinds of goals, like going back to school, moving into an apartment, or finding a job.
Find out what Back on My Feet is all about by joining us for an orientation and then for a morning run at one of our four teams. For more information and to sign up for a team, read more here: http://chicago.backonmyfeet.org/Get-Involved.html
Join our Back on My Feet family, and make your miles count for more than just the distance!
