Mission: Back on My Feet (BoMF) is a national nonprofit organization that is dedicated to creating independence and self-sufficiency within the homeless and other underserved populations by first engaging them in running as a means to build confidence, strength and self-esteem.

Volunteer Opportunities: 

We run with our teams Monday, Wednesday and Friday every week at 5:45am- these runs require volunteers to go through a hour training.

Weekly opportunities include:  Monday, Wednesday, Friday 5:45am, at Wheeler Mission Ministries or Hoosier Veterans Assistance Foundation (HVAF), both located in downtown Indianapolis.

We are also seeking volunteers to assist with our water stations at races on behalf of Back on My Feet once a month. Our Members run one race a month and in exchange for donated bibs for our Members, we provide volunteer support.
