HVAF of Indiana, Inc. runner receives recognition

In August, 2011, Lee. W., pictured left, was recognized as Back on My Feet's "Member of the Month" for his dedication and hard work in a national running program.

"I’m surprising myself. I know I’m going to make it; I’m losing the doubt," Lee says.

Back in February 2011, HVAF partnered with Back on My Feet, a national nonprofit organization that promotes the self-sufficiency of those experiencing homelessness by engaging them in running.

Several of HVAF clients, previously homeless veterans, meet once a week at HVAF's Warman apartments along with volunteers for a morning run. Lee along with other runners have built up momentum and have competed in several well-known Indy races, including the Carmel Half Marathon.
