In Their Own Words…


“I received my first pair of running shoes in February of 2009, after connecting with the People in Motion wellness program. Here was a group that accepted me as I was — no questions about labels and psychiatric history. We were simply people walking together, learning to enjoy a healthier way of life.”

“By the grace of God, I’ve been given a new lease on life. It’s not always easy, but with the help of a strong support system, and an expanded circle of friends, I’m continuing to move forward. And to think – it all began with the gift of a brand new pair of running shoes. Thank you!”
