Chrissy started her involvement with Back on My Feet as a Fundracer in fall 2011 while training for the Monumental Marathon and to date has raised more than $12,000 for Back on My Feet through fundracing. In spring 2012 she became the Team Leader for Team Manchester when it opened and Back on My Feet quickly became an organization Chrissy was passionate about.
"Service has been a personal core value since I was 14 when I started serving in soup kitchens. I ran my first half marathon in 2010 and my best friend is a recovering addict. Back on My Feet is a unique organization that takes everything I'm passionate about and encompasses it into one mission that I believe in. I love how the program and volunteer interaction transforms lives while the members learn to achieve self sufficiency."
Chrissy has a degree in Marketing from Arizona State and an MBA in marketing from Indiana University. Prior to working for Back on My Feet, Chrissy was on the professional staff of Alpha Kappa Psi Business Fraternity and was in charge of membership and corporate sponsorship at the Indiana State Museum. Chrissy knows first hand how transformative the sport of running can be as training for Ironman Arizona has helped to transform her life.
