Their efforts assisted the race director and provided motivation and support to the 400 registered runners that participated.
Back on My Feet’s mission is to use running to create self-sufficiency in the lives of those experiencing homelessness. The program’s success is measured by how many Residential Members (those experiencing homelessness) achieve independence by finding employment and housing. The Meaningful Miles 5K honors Back on My Feet Atlanta’s three teams with each mile -- Trinity Community Ministries, Gateway Center and Salvation Army.
Thank you to the following employees and family members for volunteering their time on Saturday: Chantrelle Crawford, Heidi Johnson, Kim Collins, Sonia Amon-Tanoh, Carmen Grant, Herman Mannings IV and Herman Mannings III.
