Welcome to Claire DelCasale's Page
I am truly humbled by the generosity of my friends and family so far!!! Within 4 hours of launching my fundraising campaign, I have reached my minimum goal of $500, but I don't want to stop there. I have raised my stretch goal to $750 and I truly believe that this cause is more than deserving!!
The Back on My Feet organization uses running and community to motivate and support individuals every step of the way from homelessness to independence. Back on My Feet recruits members (individuals experiencing homelessness) at homeless and residential facilities around the country and begins with a commitment to run three days a week in the early morning. 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. Almost 80% of individuals who start the program move into Next Steps. For more information about the Back on My Feet organization, feel free to visit their website http://www.backonmyfeet.org/mission-vision
Any donations, large or small, will help me reach this new goal so that I can run the Broad Street Run with a sense of pride that's greater than simply finishing the 10 miles. I really do appreciate all of those who helped already and all of those who are still willing to help!
