Back on My Feet seeks to revolutionize the way our society approaches homelessness. Their unique running-based model demonstrates that if you first restore confidence, strength and self-esteem, individuals are better equipped to tackle the road ahead and move toward jobs, homes and new lives.

For all in need, they aim to provide: practical training and employment resources for achieving independence; an environment that promotes accountability; and a community that offers compassion and hope.

As the largest privately-run nonprofit animal shelter in the state, IndyHumane provides direct services for thousands of cats and dogs each year, finding forever homes for animals in need, offering low-cost vaccinations and affordable spay/neuter surgeries, and distributing supplies to rescues throughout the state. For more than 100 years, it’s all about the animals.

Each year homelessness impacts over 5,000 children in the Indianapolis area alone, and education is their key to a brighter future.

School on Wheels provides children experiencing homelessness with one-on-one tutoring sessions, multiple times a week, and supports their parents through workshops and office hours to empower them to be their child’s best educational advocates. Founded in 2001, School on Wheels’ vision is to break the cycle of homelessness for education. When you support them, you improve the Indianapolis community and transform the lives of lives of hundreds of children impacted by homelessness every year.

Cancer Support Community Central Indiana exists so that no one faces cancer alone. For over 23 years, they’ve lead the charge in Indiana to build a vibrant community of cancer survivors and their loved ones. They focus on providing psycho-social support to complement medical treatments that nurture every part of a patient as they learn and grow and recover. With any cancer diagnosis come feelings of hopelessness and social isolation. It is their goal to make sure cancer patients don’t have to go it alone.

At Cancer Support Community, you’re more than your cancer. You’re a member of a diverse and welcoming community of people who understand what you’re going through. You’re you at your very best.

About the Event

The 12 Bars of Indianapolis was created this year to help local charities build awareness, attract local members, and raise money for their organizations. In addition, we aim to drive revenue to the local bars and restaurants. This being it’s first year, we are expecting to raise over $7,000 for local Indianapolis charities!
