Welcome! Rose Cabral is running BSIM in 2017!!
Thank you for checking out my run! I am so excited to run Big Sur AND to help an incredible organization. Homelessness is a BIG problem across the U.S., including Sacramento. The good news is there are people are organizations trying to help.
This is not something I talk about very often, but several of my own family members have experienced (and are currently experiencing) homelessness. It is heartbreaking and its hard to know sometimes how to help. Over the years I have purchased food, socks and cell phone minutes to ensure my family members could reach me. I have driven around for hours trying to find them, to know they are safe. I still have hope and in 2017 I will help by running for my dad and the 2,658 others experiencing homelessness on any given night in Sacramento County.
Back on My Feet proves that there is hope, that individuals can achieve things they never thought possible, and that there are people who will support them along the way. Be one of those people and support my run in the fight against homelessness. Together we will empower people and change our communities in the process.
