Manuel Navarro used to hate running. Now, he loves it because it’s helping him get his life back on the right path. A former drug dealer who spent time in prison, Manuel is a member of Back on My Feet, a nonprofit that integrates running into its program to combat homelessness in 12 major cities. Manuel, who lives in San Francisco, meets his running partner and Back on My Feet volunteer, Pete Roller, three times a week. He feels empowered by the combination of exercise and encouragement. “I think we all deserve a second chance, and I’m taking it,” Manuel enthuses. This Great Big Story was made possible by Dignity Health.
