First things first…I am nominated for the Fitness Magazine Blog Awards in the category of Best Healthy Living Blog. I know there are a ton of awesome ladies in this category but since this is the first competitive thing I’ve ever done with my blog, I figured I might as well give it a push!

I’ve never been one for fancy fundraisers or dinners. I’m always appalled by the prices and can’t stop thinking about how much money an organization could raise if they weren’t buying everyone dinner and renting a room to raise money in!

That’s why I’m all IN for the Second Annual Back on My Feet DC Blue & Green Birthday Bash fundraiser. Nearly all overhead costs are taken care of through donations of space, food, drinks, music and more. The money you spend on a ticket will go straight into the program that does SO much for this community.

It’s time to take a look at your pocketbooks, people. If you live in DC, this is your city. These are your people. Instead of feeling guilty and heartbroken passing by the homeless man on the street — do something about it. This organization changes lives. Real, actual, living, breathing lives. This stuff matters. Are you going to be a part of something that matters?

Back on My Feet Blue & Green Birthday Bash
  • Purchase your ticket today! An evening of celebration, inspiration, music, great food, dancing and memories awaits! 
  • Let’s applaud the efforts of Back on My Feet members, volunteers & supporters for their efforts in growing an organization that is helping people change their lives.
