Back on My Feet is coming to Chicago. Back on My Feet (BOMF) is, according to their website, "a nonprofit organization that promotes the self-sufficiency of homeless populations by engaging them in running as a means to build confidence, strength and self-esteem."
BOMF is having an informational happy hour this coming Thursday, August 5th, at Victory Liquors, located at 2610 N Halsted Street in Lincoln Park. The event goes from 6:30 until 8:30 and for 20 bucks you'll get two hours of an open bar, with $5.00 of the proceeds going directly to BOMF. Anne Mahlum, a former CNN Hero, and the founder of BOMF, will be on hand.
Bring your friends Thursday night to support this organization that will launch here in Chicago in September on the 22nd of that month.
