Back On My Feet (BOMF)

Back on My Feet combats homelessness through the power of running, community support and essential employment and housing resources.Operating in 12 major cities coast-to-coast, Back on My Feet uses running and community to motivate and support individuals every step of the way from homelessness to independence. Our success is measured not only by the health impact of miles run, but also by how many individuals obtain education, employment and housing.
