#347: Helping the Homeless Through Running

Sarah and BRF Molly dive into a conversation with Ashley Kilpatrick of Back on My Feet, a national organization that combats homelessness through, in part, the power of running. The mother runner of three young children describes why she started running in law school. Ashley shares the intriguing back story of Back on My Feet, and she talks about how the program restores a sense of belonging and accomplishment among homeless individuals and people with substance addiction. Detailing the thrice-weekly, pre-dawn runs, Ashley says they are “a space for equal footing,” in which passersby usually can’t tell the members from the volunteers. The trio talk about how running fuels self-esteem and confidence, no matter one’s living situation. Ashley shares powerful anecdotes about standout success stories in the program. She also elaborates on how to get involved in the organization, including fundraising in exchange for a bib to a bevy of big-name marathons.
Lovers of #foundchange, Harry Potter, and cats will especially enjoy the intro chitchat! Ashley from Back on My Feet jumps into the conversation at 14:52.
