I'm on the advisory board of an organization called Back on My Feet (www.backonmyfeet.org), a running program for homeless people that started in Philly and is expanding to DC in March of 2010. You may have read about it in Runner's World or another publication.
We're holding a happy hour on Thursday, October 22 at Union Pub to begin getting the word out about the program. For more information, please see
I hope some of you can make it! -Hilary Cairns
I saw Back On My Feet featured on CNN Heroes for 2008 and I cried like a little school girl.
This sounds really cool. I had it posted on the DC Capital Striders site too so hopefully you will get some more people that way. I am definitely interested in learning more and finding out how I can be involved.
Sounds great, Hillary! I will stop by. There was an article in Runner's World about the founder and her team in Philly last year.
