As a runner, I love giving back to our sport, whether it’s through volunteering, charity running, or simply assisting races that support local causes.
On August 16th, the third annual Meaningful Miles 4 mile race will hit the Historic Fourth Ward Park section of Atlanta. In partnership with Mizuno, Meaningful Miles gives runners “the opportunity to run alongside, not past, individuals transitioning out of homeless in our city. Proceeds from the race go back to Back on My Feet, and a BOMF chapter is honored at each mile, including Trinity Community Ministries, Gateway Center, Salvation Army, and City of Refuge.

Pass the Baton
“Mizuno believes running has the power to transform the world, one person at a time.” In support of Back on My Feet, Mizuno is donating $1 for every mile run with the Mizuno Baton app. Currently at $49, 794, imagine how much could be raised if everyone ran?
Runners can download the Mizuno Baton on both the Apple app store and also via Google Play. You have one week to rack up as many miles as possible. For every mile, Mizuno will donate $1 to Back on My Feet! All you have to do is run!
Runners are encouraged to fundraise; however, it is not required. Your participation is crucial in helping us assist those challenged by homelessness throughout the city of Atlanta and beyond. Bring your friends and family, your running shoes, and come run with us on August 16th at 8 a.m.!
