|Back on My Feet is 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.
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.
We currently have chapters in Philadelphia, Baltimore and, officially as of Monday, March 22nd, in Washington D.C. The nonprofit is expanding to Boston in May 2010 and Chicago in fall 2010.
