Back on My Feet Fundraiser Tuesday Night
Back on My Feet (BOMF) is a non-profit organization that promotes the self-sufficiency of Philadelphia's homeless population by engaging them in running as a means to build confidence, strength and self-esteem.
It costs approximately $100 to get a new member started in the BOMF program, which goes to buy the individual shoes, socks, a shirt and shorts as well as to help purchase incentives for the mileage goals.
I recently met Wylie Belasik, the organization's training coach and assistant manager of Philadelphia Runner, who was 100% pumped about the programs being offered.
This Tuesday's Muscle Group (12/4), meeting at the Art Museum from 5:30-6:30pm, will be a fundraiser for BOMF. All $10 group fees (plus anything above and beyond that you would like to kick in) will be donated to sponsor a runner in the program. Hopefully we can make it to $100!
