Back on My Feet, a national organization operating in 12 major cities across the US, combats homelessness through the power of running, community support and essential employment and housing resources.

Impact: Back on My Feet recruits individuals (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.
