Episode 284: Casey Crouse & Trevor DeWitt – One Thousand One City, New Shoe Day
A Bonus episode today coming at you on a Wednesday!! Casey Crouse an Trever DeWitt join me on the show today to share about an amazing project they adventured on this summer called One Thousand One City. This episode is also being aired on the Illuminate Podcast but there’s so much running goodness in it that we gotta air it over here too!
Casey Crouse and Trevor Dewitt are on the show today. Back in June they started a project called One Thousand One City which they completed this September.
One Thousand One City started as a project aimed at connecting the city of Indianapolis by running 1000 miles through its neighborhoods in 100 days. The goal is to meet its citizens, listen to their stories, and share what they have to say.
When the world often seems too big and disconnected, sometimes the best thing a person can do is to set out on their own two feet and simply meet people where they are at.
At its core, OTOC is about taking on a difficult challenge in order to achieve growth towards a better sense of connectedness and understanding to those around us. Through OTOC, another project – New Shoe Day was formed and you’ll hear all about that and their vision for turning it into a non profit in this episode!
Casey is a passionate ultra runner, passionate about movement, self-betterment, connecting to people and sharing personal stories of impact. Both Casey and Trevor work for Edge Mentoring – an organization that pairs young professionals with community leaders, EDGE provides the space for whole-person development while connecting generations in meaningful mentoring relationships.
Trevor is the logistics guy and not only did he run every mile with Casey for this project but he mapped out much of it and made sure the planning was all figured out.
This is a Cross Over Episode- it is also being aired on The Illuminate Podcast! The Illuminate Podcast is another podcast in the Sandyboy Productions network that highlights stories of people doing good work in the World. 🙂
