Former Addict Finds New High in Running
Rock bottom is when you've lost everything, including a place to call home. When his addiction to drugs became too much, Nick hit bottom hard. The change he desperately needed was Back On My Feet, a non-profit that uses running as a tool of empowerment for those experiencing homelessness. By exercising with other people with similar struggles, Nick (and others like him) gained confidence and self worth: two vital ingredients for a life of independence, employment, and most importantly, happiness.
