Volunteer opportunity posted by: Back on My Feet Chicago
Posted on: January 24, 2013
Back on My Feet is dedicated to creating independence and self-sufficiency within the homeless and other underserved populations by first engaging them in running as a means to build confidence, strength, and self-esteem.
We combine our passion for running with compassion for those individuals who are experiencing homelessness to createa program that acts as a stepping-stone for all of the rest of life's meaningful accomplishments. We run alongside our teammates in the hopes that our support and friendship will enable them not just to complete a mile or finish a race, but to also set and reach all other kinds of goals, like going back to school, moving into an apartment, or finding a job.
Find out what Back on My Feet is all about by joining us for an orientation and then for a morning run at one of our four Chicago teams. For more information and to sign up for an orientation, please see our website: http://chicago.backonmyfeet.org/Get-Involved.html
Be part of our morning circle, our team, our community, and most importantly, our Back on My Feet family. Join us and see how your miles can count for much more than the distance!
