  • Title: Our Story | Back on My Feet
    Descriptive info: This is our history.. org/sites/default/files/may_2007-01_0.. png?ts=20130612094645.. May 1, 2007.. Humble Beginnings.. Early morning runs have always been an integral part of every morning for Founder CEO Anne Mahlum.. The discipline, the focus - there was just something that sets them apart.. It was on these early morning runs, passing by the Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission at 13th Vine Streets in Philadelphia, that Anne first met the original Back on My Feet Members.. After waves, greetings and jokes, she developed a friendly rapport with the men from the mission.. Anne realized that if running could help her through her own personal challenges, there was no reason it couldn t help these men through their struggles.. Jul 3, 2007.. First Steps Along the Road to Independence.. It was the day before the Fourth of July, 2007 - Independence Day.. On this Philadelphia morning, so many years after another group of men defined their own independence in this very city, nine men experiencing homelessness took their first steps toward self-sufficiency on a run with Anne.. The Dedication Contract they signed that day committed them to arrive on time, and with a positive attitude, three days each week at 5:30 a.. m.. This inaugural run is what sparked the fire that would become Back on My Feet.. Oct 1, 2007.. Making a Splash in the Philadelphia Running Scene.. After the success of our first fundraiser in July, runners began to flock to Back on My Feet, eager to combine their love of the sport with the energizing feeling of helping those experiencing homelessness.. When the ever-popular Philadelphia Marathon sold out, runners called to purchase our charity race entries enabling us to raise a staggering $45,000 in three days!.. Dec 1, 2007.. Formal Attire Sneakers.. In December of our first year, Back on My Feet supporters donned formal attire and sneakers for our first Bash.. Not only did this make dancing much easier, but it alos helped to shine a spotlight on the nature of the organization.. Our goals, our methods, our events - everything is aimed at creating self-sufficiency within the lives of those experiencing homelessness through the sport of running, even if that means dancing from time to time.. This celebratory event is now a highlight on each chapter s calendar!.. Dec 14, 2007.. Hi, Charles Gibson.. If you thought sneakers and ballroom gowns were attention grabbing, imagine the outcome when ABC Nightly News shined its light our way! On Dec.. 14, 2007 ABC World News ran a report on Back on My Feet, highlighting the genesis of our organization and the positivity it was spreading.. With more than 5 million nightly viewers, the feature on Back on My Feet garnered unprecedented attention bringing in volunteers, donations and requests for our program in cities across the country.. Jan 1, 2008.. Growing, Saving, Employing.. After months of dedicated running, goal-setting and training, Back on My Feet became an official 501(c)3 nonprofit.. Cue: (1) the expansion of the organization from a partnership with just one shelter to in-depth relationships with four facilities, (2) $100,000 in generous donations in the bank, (3) the first paid employee, (4) our first, real-deal leased office.. We were picking up the pace.. Jul 1, 2008.. The Start of a Philadelphia Race Tradition.. Since non-traditional was becoming part of our tradition, Back on My Feet s first official race wasn t just a 5K or 10K - it was an all-day, multi-race event with an ultra-marathon to test even veteran marathoners, a smattering of different relays, a Midnight Madness run rocking reflective gear and a Pajama Loop run featuring  ...   back on track.. Mar 1, 2009.. First Expansion City.. Homelessness is more than a Philadelphia issue.. There are men and women from all walks of life across the country experiencing what can feel like an impossible road ahead.. With little more than sneakers, amazing community support and a will to run that road, we began to branch out to new cities and brought our message and methods to Baltimore, MD.. The chapter launched in March 2009 with a dedicated and enthusiastic community of Members.. Feb 1, 2010.. Investing in Financial Aid and Literacy.. As our organization continued to grow and lives continued to change with each new run, team and training session our milestones continued to not only be met, but surpassed.. By February 2010, Back on My Feet Philadelphia distributed more than $25,000 in financial aid to help Members overcome the costly challenges of getting off the streets and into new apartments and jobs.. The chapter simultaneously launched its Financial Literacy program which soon became a best practice for all future chapters.. Jun 15, 2010.. 100 Members Trained.. After three years of running and growing, our 100th Residential Member, those experiencing homelessness, entered in our training and education program.. One month later, our first Member was hired by our partner, the JW Marriott Washington DC.. Mar 1, 2011.. Five New Chapters in One Year.. In just 12 months, marching from March to March, we launched new chapters in Washington DC, Boston, Chicago, Dallas and Indianapolis spreading from a few East Coast sites all the way to the middle of the country.. As we expanded, we also nominated a National Board of Directors to guide growth, efficiency and sustainability.. May 1, 2011.. 100,000 Miles.. Back on My Feet may only have been in seven markets and less than four years old, but we reached worldly heights when, cumulatively, our Members ran a total of 100,000 miles.. To put it in perspective, that is the equivalent of running more than four times around the world!.. Jul 1, 2011.. 300th Member Obtains Employment.. The whole impetus of our organization is to drive life-transforming results for our Members; to get them to reach their goals and achieve what they once thought to be unachievable.. Using the formula of running, job training, goal-setting and personal transformation, the Back on My Feet program led 300 Members by July of 2011 to self-sufficiency measured through employment and housing.. That s 300 people off the streets and back on their feet!.. Nov 1, 2011.. From Hotlanta to the Big Apple.. Refusing to ever slow down, Back on My Feet Atlanta launched on 11.. 11.. 11 and only five months later, we had our ninth chapter in the Big Apple! Back on My Feet New York City launched with five teams in various boroughs to typical New York fanfare ringing the bell at the NASDAQ OMX and making an appearance at Yankees Stadium.. Jan 1, 2013.. Back on My Feet Coast to Coast.. The future is bright! We started 2013 with a staggering $6.. 5 million budget and more than 45 staff members in 10 cities.. Since September of 2008, 743 Residential Members obtained employment and 519 obtained housing.. On January 25, we announced that Back on My Feet Los Angeles would extend our program to the West Coast by the end of the year and then just three days later, we launched our 10th chapter in Austin, helping individuals in cities all across the country get back on their feet.. Drag the bar to see our milestones and achievements.. 2007.. Today.. Slide Left.. Slide Right..

  • Title: Our History | Back on My Feet
    Descriptive info: Our History.. Can a morning run change the course of your life? We think so.. bomfbeta.. org/sites/default/files/Anne_running_0.. png?ts=20131015122225.. In 2007, when Back on My Feet Founder, Anne Mahlum, was 26 years old and living in Philadelphia, she was at a crossroads in her life.. For the past several months, the idea of her purpose had been all consuming – she was willing to do anything to find it, she just didn’t know where to look.. Soon she realized it was right beneath her feet.. Running was Anne’s staple.. She became a runner when she was 16 to get through a turbulent time for her family due to her dad’s gambling addiction.. Anne found clarity and strength in the movement of running.. It helped her to understand that you must take things one step at a time.. It also helped Anne to realize that difficult roads lead to difficult choices – you either persevere, or turn around and make excuses.. Running helped Anne discover who she was and what she loved about herself.. Ten years later, in May of 2007 at 5:30 a.. on the streets of Philadelphia, Anne began to form a relationship with several men outside of Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission.. This is when she realized that she could help these people if she stopped running by them and started running with them.. Anne called the Mission, and with a little persistence, received permission to start an official running club with nine guys living  ...   just a running club – this could be the core to changing people’s lives:.. The Members were coming out every day of their own volition.. Anne believed (and still does!) that voluntary behavior is the only way change is possible.. No one was forcing or threatening the individuals experiencing homelessness to be on that corner at 6 a.. They were there because they wanted to be.. While recording how far people ran after the morning runs, each Member waited anxiously to receive credit for their hard work.. It was clear: no matter how many differences there are between us, the similarities are what connect us and make us human.. We all want to be noticed, appreciated, recognized, valued, cared for and loved.. It is these emotions that drive us every day.. The theoretical question that Anne asked herself was, “if we can change the way people see themselves, can we change the direction of their lives?” She felt very strongly that if we could help people experiencing homelessness see themselves as deserving, capable, hardworking, responsible, disciplined, focused and reliable, it would be possible for them to move toward independence.. This question is no longer a theory – it is a reality.. Today, 46% of Residential Members in the Back on My Feet program move their lives forward with a job, independent housing or both..
