A chance encounter on the Queensboro Bridge at Mile 15 of the New York City Marathon changed one runner's motivation mid-race.
Make your daily miles count towards a good cause with the Mizuno Baton initiative to benefit Back on My Feet. Participation is as easy as downloading the Mizuno Baton app for iPhone or Android. Participants have an entire week to run as many miles as they can, using the app to record their progress. For every mile run, Mizuno will donate $1 to Back on My Feet.
Back on My Feet is a charitable organization that helps those experiencing homelessness transform their lives through running. With 11 chapters nationwide and expanding, they have helped 2,000 members find employment, housing, or both.
So start running! And once your week is up, pass the baton to friends so they can raise money as well. The Mizuno Baton initiative will run through August. Get started here.
