Join Us for a Challenge!

The Washington, D.C. Treadmill Challenge is a team endurance competition which celebrates the life-changing power of running and highlights the role our community plays in helping those experiencing homelessness take steps toward independence. Together as one community, we’ll keep treadmills in motion for 5 consecutive hours to raise awareness and funds for Back on My Feet in Washington, D.C.

Our goal is to raise $20,000 to support Back on My Feet members and programming in our nation’s capital.

Taking place on Saturday, December 14th at VIDA Fitness in downtown Washington, D.C.,the 2019 Treadmill Challenge provides an opportunity to highlight the unique challenges of our community’s most vulnerable populations and the ways in which we can reduce the stigma associated with homelessness.
