Thank you for visiting!
I will be taking on the Dallas Treadmill Challenge on December 07, 2019!
I won't be doing it alone, but rather running for and with Back on My Feet (BoMF) sponsored by AT&T. As an avid runner with the #B2BRunClub, I spend a lot of my time outdoors training towards a goal of running a marathon. This goal has helped keep me motivated to stay healthy, grounded in my work-life balance, and ultimately help make some great friends along the way. The weekend after this event, I'm going to make that goal come true as I work to finish the BMW Dallas Marathon. In the meantime, please consider helping out this great cause.
About the Program:
Back on My Feet recruits individuals at homeless or addiction and treatment facilities around the country. These individuals – known as members – commit to run three early mornings a week. Goals are set and achieved with one mile becoming two, two becoming three and so on, and after 30 days with 90%, their first milestone: they earn the opportunity to move into Next Steps.
In Next Steps, members work with Back on My Feet program staff to develop a personal road map to independence. Each member attends financial literacy classes and job skills training provided through partnerships with our corporate partners. Members can earn financial aid to remove barriers to employment and housing such as work supplies, transportation and security deposits. Members who achieve employment and housing become Alumni Members.
This cause is very dear to me, and I'll appreciate all the support I can get!
