This year, our Fit Fest-ivities will include:
To participate in Fit Fest, all you need to do is commit to completing 60 minutes of some form of activity — whether it's running, biking, yoga, weight lifting, hiking, or something else! Get fit where and how you prefer, share your sweaty workout selfies, and let your friends and family know how they can support our mission.
Register now for $35 to make fitness fun and become part of an amazing community that moves forward together.

Back on My Feet empowers people to overcome their struggles with homelessness and/or addiction through the power of fitness, community, and essential employment & housing resources. Changing old habits, discovering fresh perceptions of self, and transforming their futures.
Operating in 16 cities nationwide, Back on My Feet recruits members at homeless shelters and rehabilitation facilities. Our members begin their journey by committing to run 2-3 days a week and when they are ready, move on to educational support, job training programs, employment partnership referrals, and housing resources. Since 2007, Back on My Feet has served more than 15,000 individuals experiencing or at risk of homelessness and engaged more than 150,000 volunteers and supporters. Our members have run a collective 500,000+ miles and obtained more than 10,000 jobs and homes.
With your support, the communities we build together around the U.S. serve as lifelong support systems, removing shame and isolation. It’s about the drive, grit, and courage to take that first step toward a new life. And while it may not be an easy road, we’re there every step of the way.
