For the second year, BBI joined Back on My Feet on a celebratory anniversary run on November 2 at the Salvation Army Rehabilitation location in Fort Lauderdale.
In 2020, BBI sponsored the Back on My Feet (BoMF) chapter in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Back on My Feet is a non-profit that combats homelessness through the power of running, community support, and essential employment and housing resources. They've been operating in 17 major cities coast-to-coast.
We've seen firsthand great success stories of individuals who started showing up Monday, Wednesday, and Friday to run at 5:30 am and today are working full-time and are entirely independent. We've also seen BoMF Alumni showing up to encourage new members and volunteers. Overall the program has helped many individuals with essential employment, housing resources, and reintegration into the community.
