Welcome to Danielle's Page
Thank you for checking out my page!
I'm so excited to be running my first marathon on April 30th, 2017 in Big Sur, and to be fundraising for Back on my Feet.
Back on My Feet introduced me to a warm and open space filled with incredible people. At 5:45am MWF, we gather as a team (composed of volunteers and members from homeless shelters) to hug, stretch, share stories, and run/walk, starting the day filled with love and encouragement.
I love watching the members feel more comfortable each morning with themselves and fitness. As we're out running or walking the streets, we interact about our daily and personal lives and support one another.
Back on My Feet provides members with running shoes and clothing (after commitment of attending 2 runs in a row), workshops for resume building and financial literacy, and job and housing resources. Since the launching in 2007, BoMF has expanded into 12 cities across the US and has touched the lives of 6,000 individuals experiencing homelessness. Since then, "members have run a collective 500,000 miles and obtained more than 4,000 jobs and homes." (backonmyfeet.org/mission-vision).
I graciously appreciate your support in helping me reach my fundraising goal and more so helping this incredible organization continue providing compassion for others.
Thank you so much!! For more info, please see the link for SF's chapter: sanfrancisco.backonmyfeet.org
