Love to Run? Want to help a great cause? Back on My Feet comes to Boston!

Do you love to run or be active? Have you been looking to get involved with a cause but not sure which one? Look no further. Back on My feet- a highly successful non profit, which works to end the cycle of homelessness through empowerment is coming to Boston this May.

From their site:

Back on My Feet is a non-profit organization that promotes the self-sufficiency of the homeless population by engaging them in running as a means to build confidence, strength and self-esteem.

Back on My Feet does not provide food nor does it provide shelter, but instead provides a community that embraces equality, respect, discipline, teamwork and leadership. There are no labels, no stigmas and no stereotypes. At Back on My Feet, all members - regardless of race, education or socioeconomic status - join together to move their own lives forward as well as the lives of their teammates.

Back on My Feet is looking for people to help in several ways:

Run a Race for Back on My Feet: You can FundRace for BOMF at absolutely any race you are running, just ask Maureen how! Additionally, we have a limited number of guaranteed entries to the Philadelphia, Chicago, New York City, Marine Corps or the National marathons. The quantity of race numbers available are moving quickly (less than a dozen left for some races!) so act fast to secure your number – click here! FundRacing is 25 percent of our revenue and a great way to help raise money specifically for the Boston Chapter.

Show Your Support in Style: Be among the first to run along the Charles in BOMF gear: www.backonmyfeet.org/merchandise.
