Whether you are an experienced marathon champ or a confirmed couch potato, you are sure to have heard the term “runner’s high”, and I think anyone who has spent 30 minutes on the treadmill can attest that this little boost of self-confidence and well-being is no myth.
Back on My Feet is a national for-purpose organization that uses the joy of running as a catalyst to change the way people experiencing homelessness see themselves, encouraging them to make real changes in their lives that will result in employment and independent living.
Norwood’s annual Back on My Feet 5k is held on January 1st, perfect timing to ring in a new year with a new beginning! Rather than providing provide food or shelter for those experiencing homelessness, the organization uses this 5K as a launching point to create a supportive community of acceptance for all backgrounds, embracing and encouraging equality, respect, discipline, teamwork and leadership.
This year’s race begins on Jan 1st, 2016 at 10am from the Knights of Columbus Hall. To register online, visit runsignup.com Bonus! The first 200 registrants will a free long sleeve tee shirt ; you don’t want to miss out on that!
