On My Feet transforms lives. We assist those at risk of, or dealing with, homelessness by providing exercise groups and structured programs aimed at creating pathways to self-sufficiency and improved wellbeing.
The Footsteps Program is a six-month self-development course for up to 15 chosen participants who are experiencing, or at risk of, homelessness. During the program, participants undertake weekly educational workshops exploring positive physical and mental health, goal setting, strength identification, leadership and role modelling. Concurrently to these weekly workshops, participants train with On My Feet every week to improve their physical well-being and running ability.
