Back on My Feet would like to send out a huge thank-you to the Wissahickon Wanderers for organizing the All-Comers Track Meet last Tuesday evening.

The opportunity to participate in a great night of fast races on the track was a first for many of our members and we had a fantastic time.

Close to 40 of our members ran in the meet last week with many of us setting new personal bests!

A special thanks to the various Wanderers Chefs for helping to fill everyone up after some tough racing. Back on My Feet would also like to thank Dan Gordon for his help in coordinating our participation.

For those who may not know, Back on My Feet is a Philadelphia-based non-profit that seeks to promote the self-sufficiency of individuals experiencing homelessness by engaging them in running.  Currently, we have close to 120 active residential members here in Philadelphia and over 50 in Baltimore as well. If anyone would like further information about Back on My Feet or how to get involved, please check out our website,

Thank you again and happy running!!
