Great Big Story speaks to Back On My Feet, an organisation that helps homeless people to get back on their feet, by taking up jogging!


The charity help homeless people in the US in other ways too. They help with housing and offer food services as well. But their running club element of the organisation is aimed at creating a sense of community with the local homeless populations. Giving homeless people food, money and shelter helps a lot, but loneliness can be one of the toughest elements of life on the street.

In this video, they speak to Manuel Navarro, who takes part in the running club. He tells us how it’s reconnected him with people again and has given him more hope. The club is about more than just fitness, it’s about restoring a sense of dignity and companionship in these people’s lives.  It’s a touching story that reminds us of the power of kindness and community.
