Synopsis: Anne M. Mahlum is an entrepreneur who loves to create and build with purpose. Her first go around at building something from scratch was Back on My Feet, a for-purpose 501(c)3 organization she started in Philadelphia in 2007 that uses the power of running to change the way those experiencing homelessness see themselves so they can make real change in their lives. ​

Anne served as CEO from 2007 to 2013 and in that time grew the organization to Baltimore, Washington D.C., Boston, Chicago, Dallas and Indianapolis, Atlanta, New York City, Austin and Los Angeles. BoMF is a $6.5M annual nonprofit with staff of 45, thousands of volunteers and hundreds of members.

Anne's vision for Back on My Feet is simple, yet bold - to help as many people as possible, in the most efficient way as possible, redefine themselves so they can redefine their life and, just as important - to change the perception of homelessness on a global scale. If people don't change their perception, it will perpetuate the problem. Homelessness has a branding problem and the majority of people currently in this state are just looking for an opportunity to have a better life.
