Hi!

I'm Danielle and I will be running the Boston Marathon on April 15, 2019 with Back on My Feet, and organization that works to combat homelessness through the power of running.

There are over 17,500 people in Boston experiencing homelessness. While many of us are desensitized to numbers like this, for many people and families it is their reality. The truth is, homelessness could happen to anyone.

Back on my Feet is committed to giving individuals experiencing homelessness one of the most important things to get them back on their feet- hope. By participating in runs at 5:45 am, members restore their confidence, independence, and sense of community. After 30 days in the program, members with 90% attendance earn the opportunity to move into the second phase of the program called Next Steps, which provides educational support, job training programs, employment partnership referrals and housing resources.

While myself and many of us may never experience homelessness, we can all relate to struggle and finding ourselves in hard times. We get through challenges by moving forward, getting stronger, and through the support of those around us. Supporting the Back on my Feet members is like supporting a friend or a family member. Supporting them means spreading hope and love.

To learn more about Back on my Feet, please visit:
boston.backonmyfeet.org or watch the video below to learn about some of the incredible member's stories.

In addition to running for this organization and its members, I am taking on this challenge for myself. As someone with very little running experience, I am embarking on this journey to prove to myself that I capable of doing the seemingly impossible.

Please join me on this journey by donating what you can, sharing my story with your networks, and by helping me inspire myself and others to push through challenges and become stronger.

Every little bit counts and goes directly to serving the members here in Boston.

Thank you so much for your support!
Danielle
