Back on My Feet.
It’s 5:30 a.m. and the sun hasn’t quite peeked through the morning sky. Volunteers gather to start the day with a two-mile run around East Baltimore. Mingled in the group of runners are Baltimore City residents whose lives have been ravaged by homelessness and hardship. Nevertheless, they are making a comeback and taking strides, one run at a time, to get back on their feet.
Bloomberg School alumna Jaclyn Range, MPH ’14, leads the local chapter of Back on My Feet, an organization that helps Baltimore City residents who are homeless find the confidence and self-esteem they need to pursue education and find employment through the power and discipline of running.
At the Bloomberg School, students like Jaclyn put research, passion and knowledge into action to positively influence lives in Baltimore and cities around the globe. Won’t you join us?
