Back On My Feet

BOMF is a nonprofit organization that promotes the self-sufficiency of homeless populations by engaging them in running as a means to build confidence, strength and self-esteem. We do not provide food or shelter, but instead provide a community that embraces equality, respect, discipline, teamwork and leadership. Our organization consists of much more than just running: our members participate in a comprehensive program that offers connections to job training, employment and housing. Those benefits are earned by maintaining 90 percent attendance at the morning runs three days a week for our six to nine month program. .

Running for Rocco

Running for Rocco

Runnin For Rocco  In November 2008, a beautiful baby boy, Rocco, was brought into the world. Tragically, his mother, Teresa, passed away from a rare obstetric complication known as Amniotic Fluid Embolism (AFE) during his delivery. What was supposed to be a day of great joy for this young family soon turned to one of the most difficult.

Wanting to do something to honor Teresa, an avid runner, her husband, family and friends created Runnin’ 4 Rocco, a team of runners and walkers to participate in the Baltimore Running Festival. The team hopes to teach young Rocco, that he is loved and most importantly teach others the important lesson of overcoming tragedy and living your life with purpose. All proceeds raised benefit the AFE Foundation, which offers support to those affected or devastated by Amniotic Fluid Embolism.
