Feet on the Street
June 1st is National Running Day. Celebrate all month long by participating in the Feet on the Street virtual 5k/10k/Half Marathon and help raise money for a charity that combats homelessness through the power of running. All registrants will receive a custom digital race bib and an awesome 4″ running shoes medal. Not only do the letters and laces GLOW IN THE DARK, but the bottom of the shoe is made out of PVC, so it feels like a real running shoe sole!
Run or walk your chosen distance whenever and wherever you want. Medals will be shipped after you upload your results or at the end of the virtual race period, whichever comes first.
Back on My Feet, a national organization operating in 11 major cities coast to coast, combats homelessness through the power of running, community support, and essential employment and housing resources. The organization’s unique running-based model demonstrates that if you first restore confidence, strength and self-esteem, individuals are better equipped to tackle the road ahead and move toward jobs, homes and new lives.
Since launching in 2007, Back on My Feet has served more than 5,500 individuals experiencing or at risk of homelessness and engaged more than 100,000 volunteers and supporters. By combating homelessness through their innovative program, Back on My Feet proves that there is hope, that individuals can achieve things they never thought possible, and that there are people who will support them along the way.
A portion of the proceeds from this virtual race (at least $5 from each registration) will be donated to Back On My Feet. For more information about this charity or to make a direct contribution, please visit BackOnMyFeet.org.
