CHICAGO (FOX 32 NEWS) - Some considered Jamie Leibert to be a lost cause.
He was addicted to drugs, lived on the street, robbed post offices, and eventually ended up in prison. However, Leibert was able to turn his life around and he did it through extreme sports.
Now, Leibert is putting everything he's learned toward helping kids with his organization Just Care More.
Leibert joins Good Day Chicago to talk about his background, the beginning of Just Care More and hosting the Color Fun Fest 5K at Soldier Field.
Gates open for the Color Fun Fest is this Saturday at 4:30 p.m. Kids go free and tickets for adults run at $25.
