New York Running Company is proud to partner with Back On My Feet, an organization that empowers homeless people through running. Since its start in Philadelphia only six years ago, Back On My Feet has expanded to 10 cities and has helped hundreds of runners to literally “get back on their feet” by finding jobs and homes.
Next week is National Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week. We welcome Back On My Feet to our store this Monday, November 18 for a group run in Central Park. Following the run we will gather for a reception back at the store to kick off Back On My Feet Sneaker Week. We are looking for people who will wear their sneakers to work to raise awareness and pledges for Back On My Feet.
You can learn more about Back On My Feet and Sneaker Week by visiting backonmyfeet.org. We hope to see you on Monday… get out your sneakers and thanks for your support!!
