Our speaker today is Anne Mahlum, and her personal story is a powerful example of how real change happens. Anne is the Founder and former CEO of Back on My Feet, a non-profit that uses the power of running to help those experiencing homelessness change their lives by changing the way they see themselves. Her vision for Back on My Feet was to help as many people as possible redefine themselves, so they can then redefine their life by making lasting changes such as employment and housing. Through her leadership, Back on My Feet is now a $6.5M organization with 11 chapters nationwide, and she was named a “Top 10” CNN Hero for her work toward changing the perception of homelessness on a global scale.
She is a two-time TEDx speaker and a frequent speaker at corporate events and conferences, inspiring and reminding audiences everywhere that change begins with just one step. She is a marathoner – having completed 11 marathons, including one on every continent except Antarctica – as well as a three-time triathlete. Last year she started a new company in D.C. called [solidcore] – a high-end fitness studio that features the Lagree Fitness Method, and it’s probably no surprise that she’s already expanded it to four locations. Please help me welcome philanthropist, social change agent and entrepreneur…Anne Mahlum.
