BoMF is a running program for the homeless in Austin, TX. We love how much BoMF does to combat long term homelessness in Austin in around the country. You will probably see some BoMF members and volunteers at the race. Please reach out to them if you are interested in volunteering or joining their morning runs. They are always looking for good folks to run with. BoMF is meant to be “a vehicle to show individuals they are capable of accomplishing anything.” However, the exercise regimen also shows homeless runners that these accomplishments are “not going to happen overnight – it takes hard work, dedication and perseverance.”
