What is the Back on My Feet Fitness Festival?
The Back on My Feet Fitness Festival (Fit Fest) is a hybrid fitness challenge with both in-person and virtual participation options. Over the course of the event week (September 16-23) we are encouraging participants to dedicate at least 60 minutes of activity to Back on My Feet. This can be completed all at once in one activity (ex. one 60-minute run), or broken up into multiple activities over the course of multiple days (ex. one 30-minute bike ride on 9/17, and two 15-minute walks on 9/18 & 9/19), and you will earn 1 point per minute of activity tracked (ex. 60 minutes = 60 points). Although we are encouraging a goal of 60 minutes of activity over the week, participants can (and are encouraged to!) go above and beyond that goal! Do what feels right to you!
Where is Fit Fest located?
It’s a hybrid event! We will be hosting both in-person and virtual events throughout the week to give you multiple opportunities to connect with our community and get your fitness on, regardless of your location!
Do I get a t-shirt?
All participants who raise or donate $100 and over will receive our exclusive event tech t-shirt in their mailed packet. Plus, those who go above and beyond $100 raised or donated will have access to our FundRacing Incentive program where you can earn awesome Back on My Feet branded gear!
Why should I participate in this challenge?
Fit Fest is Back on My Feet’s largest national fundraiser to further our mission to combat homelessness. Our program uses the power of community involvement and movement to combat homelessness every day, and we are excited to expand that to our supporters. In addition to the registration fee, all funds that participants raise will go directly to support individuals who are participating in our program and working toward self-sufficiency. Our success is measured not only by positive impacts to physical and mental health, but also by how many individuals obtain education, employment and housing.
