PrintOn My Own 2 Feet, a Chattanooga Track Club running program, was started  during the summer of 2016 by Robert Gustafson and Rita Fanning. They believed that a running program aimed at those experiencing homelessness might help build self-confidence and coping skills that would transfer into other aspects of their lives.

And boy, were they right!

Several members of the program have gained employment and housing!

Participants meet at the Chattanooga Community Kitchen where they are coached through a 5k training program. Participants are given shoes and other technical gear donated by local runners. Upon completion of the program, they receive brand new running shoes and entry into an organized 5k Chattanooga Track Club race.

Need some light reading to make your day complete? Please read about the program’s history, its progress, as well as its continuing success and how we are connected to The Chattanooga Community Kitchen.

This year….we’re adding a whole new facet to our program.

We are a Chattanooga Track Club Program.
