This week we welcomed a very special guest to the show–Gary Isaacs, organizer of the Homeless For The Holidays 5K Run in Philadelphia. The run is this Sunday, December 27th at FDR Park in Philly. We had a really great conversation with Gary, discussing the beginnings of the foundation–which was started in honor of his late son, Kevan, and his passion for helping the homeless. This is such an important cause for everyone, so please, give it a listen. If you’re local, and a runner, please do what you can to get out and participate. If you aren’t local and want to help, check out the website to donate.
