Back on My Feet is not just an organization but
a family that has believed in me and provided me
with respect, encouragement and support even when
I have not believed in myself. Through their workshops, generosity and caring, they have lifted my spirits,
given me motivation, taught me the importance of
teamwork and family, and most importantly, they
have continued to stand my by my side.

The most important voice isn't ours.

Lowanna’s story is one of strength and transformation.

"Back on My Feet walked me back into good health. Sometimes I would hold onto some other runner's arm, and not one time have I ever been left behind."
