On Mondays, Wednesdays, & Fridays @ 5:30am - 6:30am volunteers from the community meet with members (those experiencing homelessness or facing other challenges) and gather together for a morning run. You do not need to be an avid runner to join our team; it's really about community. We also need volunteers for various events and services - check out this orientation to see how you can help. Come be a part of our team!!!

Back on My Feet uses running and community to motivate and support individuals every step of the way from homelessnessto independence. Our success is measured not only by the health impact of miles run, but also by how many individuals obtain education, employment,and housing.

We recruit members at homeless and residential facilities around the country and begins with acommitment to run three days a week in the early morning. After 30 days in the program, members with 90% attendanceearn the opportunity tomove into the second phase of the program called Next Steps, which provides educationalsupport, job training programs,employment partnership referrals, and housing resources.

We ask volunteers to attend 1-3 days a week if possible. As a volunteer you would be responisible for faclitating runs when BoMF staff is not present and keeping the culture of the Team healthly.
