In August, 2011, Lee. W., pictured left, was recognized as Back on My Feet’s “Member of the Month” for his dedication and hard work in a national running program.
“I’m surprising myself. I know I’m going to make it; I’m losing the doubt,” Lee says.
Back in February 2011, HVAF partnered with Back on My Feet, a national nonprofit organization that promotes the self-sufficiency of those experiencing homelessness by engaging them in running.
Several of HVAF clients, previously homeless veterans, meet once a week at HVAF’s Warman apartments along with volunteers for a morning run. Lee along with other runners have built up momentum and have competed in several well-known Indy races, including the Carmel Half Marathon.
