Our hotel isn’t just a member of the hospitality industry. We’re a member of the local community. And when we take a stand—for the planet, our communities and our people—we sleep well at night, because we know we’re living up to our potential as a corporate citizen in a changing world.
Back on My Feet (BoMF) is a national for-purpose 501(c)3 organization that uses running to help those experiencing homelessness change the way they see themselves so they can make real change in their lives that results in employment and independent living.
The organization’s mission is not to create runners within the homeless population, but to use running to create self-sufficiency in the lives of those experiencing homelessness. The program’s success is measured by how many Members obtaining independence through employment, job training and housing.
Through dedication and hard work, Residential Members (those experiencing homelessness) earn the opportunity to create a new road for themselves. Running leads to personal transformation and dedication to the program leads to access to training, employment and housing resources. Through community and corporate support, the program strives to change the perception of homelessness.
Back on My Feet started in Philadelphia in 2007
Back on My Feet has 11 chapters nationwide
46% of Residential Members (those experiencing homelessness) move their lives forward with a job, housing or both
For the past several years, our hotel has taken an active role in raising money for the Chicago Chapter of Back on My Feet (BoMF) via Sneaker Week, departmental penny wars, pie in the face fundraisers, and many other various fun and engaging activities.
