November was a great month for Back on My Feet Baltimore! We opened the month with the Tuerk House 5k, a favorite race of many of our teammates. It was a nice, cold day like years past and BoMF Baltimore showed our great spirit once again. On November 15th, BoMF Baltimore inducted another class of proud alumni and also celebrated several new senior members. There were about 100 teammates in attendance, including many alumni, who came out to share in the accomplishments of the new alumni and senior members. During this holiday season we are once again thankful for all that Back on My Feet gives us, most of all the friendship of our teammates.
Team SoBo: Several SoBo’ers participated in the Tuerk House 5k – Eddie, Ervin, Joe and George along with several non-res enjoyed a crisp morning. BoMF Inducted George H. into Alumni and welcomed Eddie P. and Roderick T. as Senior Members. BoMF Baltimore staple, Greg S., shared some good stories about George. Several other races SoBo’ers participated in – Philly full and half marathon, Richmond Marathon, Rock and Roll Savannah GA Half, Gobble Cobble Turkey Trot to name a few. Several non-res served dinner at Baltimore Station on November 28th. It was great to hear and share stories about Baltimore, running, and life. Many SoBo’ers were in attendance at BASH and would like to thank all the people involved in putting on such a fun evening. SoBo wedding bells Kari P. and Craig L.

Team Helping Up Mission: THUMB welcomed 3 new runners this month: Dan D., Tim F. & Tim G. Our team has over a dozen active members and several alumni members who are still involved with the team! On Saturday, November 3rd, several teammates participated in Tuerk House 5k at Druid Hill park. This is a great race and once again BoMF Baltimore showed great spirit. One of our newer teammates, Chris H., won his age group! On Monday, November 5th, our team gathered in Towson for movie night! A group of about 15 of us watched “Rocky” and enjoyed snacks and good times together. It was a fun night and maybe the start of a new tradition. On November 15th, another class was inducted as alumni of Back on My Feet, including HUM teammates Dave H. Joe M. & Anthony B. “Blue”. Bryant J. and Frank P. were named senior members. The event was held at the American Brewery and about 100 people attended this amazing event. It was a great night of celebration for BoMF Baltimore and one of the key successes that our organization is all about. On November 18th, several our teammates ran the Philly marathon and half marathon. It was an amazing day filled with many great successes and support from so many.
