On Monday, March 22, 2010, Back on My Feet officially launched its third chapter, with teams at four facilities in Washington D.C.

The day kicked off at 5:45 a.m. with the first team runs at Emery House, 801 East, Southeast Veterans and Clean and Sober Streets . See photos of the inaugural showing at Clean and Sober here.

Later that morning, a corporate breakfast was held at the Washington Marriot, bringing 350 friends and supporters of the new chapter. Throughout the day, some 1,300 employees throughout the region wore sneakers to work after donating $5 to the nonprofit. Many of those contributions were matched by the companies themselves. See the fundraising totals from that inaugural D.C. Sneaker Day here.

The launch day was preceded by a gear fitting for the D.C. chapter’s 40 charter members at the Clarendon Pacers Running Store.
