It has been a hot summer in Texas and even hotter morning runs for our dedicated team members! Let’s take some time to recognize their commitment to Back on My Feet in the summer heat!
|David Kemerling, Non-Residential Member, Dallas LIFE
“I really enjoy meeting people and hearing their story. I like to listen for ways to encourage others. Back on my Feet has encouraged me. Everyone I have met has really caused me to think about my life. The positive attitudes of everyone has been a real encouragement to me.”
|Michelle, Residential Member, Dallas LIFE
Michelle, a Member of the Dallas LIFE team, knows what it’s like to fall and get back up again! Not the youngest of the group, Michelle has overcome many obstacles in her life and gives credit to BoMF for helping her through this difficult time. Keep up the hard work Michelle!
|Darin Sloan, Non-Residential Member, Salvation Army
“I have really enjoyed my time running with Back On MY Feet. I have made several new friends and running with new people in new places has renewed my love of running. Everyones positive attitude and enthusiasm has been very inspiring and motivating to me. Good times! Thanks for letting me a part of such a great organization.”
|Timothy, Residential Member, Salvation Army
Timothy was hesitant to join BoMF in March 2012 because of his weight. But leaving excuses behind, Timothy joined BoMF and has become an exemplary Member of the Salvation Army team. Committed, maintaining 90% attendance and walking as much as he can, Timothy’s dedication inspires us all!
|Deanna Durham, Non-Residential Member, The Bridge
“I love that I get to speak with Residential Members throughout the week about their life’s experiences, where they’re from, their passions/desires, and their accomplishments/struggles. Back on My Feet has some of the most entertaining people I’ve ever met. It’s not all seriousness all the time. We have SO much fun! I’ve never laughed so hard with such an amazing group of people.”
|Paul, Residential Member, The Bridge
Paul is a resilient man with a whole team of BoMF runners rooting for his success! Paul has on numerous occasions fought back from illness and hospitalization just to rejoin his team at The Bridge. And although Paul is no longer able to physically run with us in the mornings, we do admire his determination in taking steps to self-sufficiency! Keep up the great work Paul!
