Join organizers to celebrate Global Running Day and the power of running in the Los Angeles community, by raising funds to support Back on My Feet. The Treadmill Challenge will comprise teams of eight runners apiece with each team using one treadmill for the four-hour event. Teams will compete for prizes including: most miles run, most funds raised and most team spirit. The individual fundraising commitment for every runner is only $250, with each team committing to raise $2,000.

Operating in 12 major cities coast-to-coast, Back on My Feet recruits’ members at homeless and residential facilities and begins with a commitment to run three days a week. The second phase of the program, Next Steps, provides educational support, job training programs, employment partnership referrals and housing resources. Since 2007, Back on My Feet has served more than 6,000 individuals experiencing homelessness and engaged more than 150,000 volunteers and supporters. Our members have run more than 850,000 miles and obtained more than 6,500 jobs and homes. Every $1 invested in Back on My Feet returns nearly $2.50 to the local community through increased economic output and cost savings.
