The Meaningful Miles 5k Presented by Oroweat is now a virtual event!

A Note to Our Volunteers: 


Back on My Feet’s top priority is the health and well-being of our members, volunteers, staff, communities and event attendees.  As you likely heard, the city of Denver has officially discouraged any events during this time.Therefore, we have decided to change the event into a virtual race so that folks can still participate in a social distancing manner, while still coming together as a community to support our mission. As such, we will no longer need volunteers for race day. We appreciate those of you who signed up your groups, friends, and family to support Back on My Feet in this manner and hope that you will consider joining us at a future Back on My Feet event!
