Welcome to Penny Lane's Page

hi Friends - As many of you are aware, I'm involved - both as a runner and board member - with the Austin chapter of Back on My Feet (BoMF), a national nonprofit that assists those experiencing addiction and/or homelessness literally get back on their feet.

What initially drew me to this organization's mission is that it's not a handout - it's a hand up. Members must run with us 3X a week at the ungodly hour of 5:30am. Once they've demonstrated this commitment for a month and beyond, BoMF assists with resources such as job training, financial literacy, and housing.

Just as important, BoMF provides members an opportunity to identify with a new "tribe" - one that's happy, healthy, and welcoming. And the support goes both ways. I'm constantly in awe of the strength and courage displayed by people I've met and friends I've made through BoMF. They inspire me every day.

BoMF's mission is not as appealing as some causes; it seems we have to work extra hard for every dollar that's donated. I promise you won't find a more useful way to directly have a positive impact on others and our Austin community. As part of our fundraising efforts, I'm running with BoMF Austin's Ragnar Relay team on Oct 20 & 21. I know many of you have recently helped others with collections to assist with natural disasters as well as tragedies, making me hesitant to ask for more. Unfortunately, homelessness and addiction are an ever-growing challenge; we all have friends and family who have been impacted.

I’ve pledged to raise funds for this worthwhile cause, but I can't reach my goal without your help. I hope you'll consider making a fully tax-deductible donation to help me meet my goal.

Thanks in advance for your generosity! - Penny
