Still Running for Recovery!
Hickory residents Angela Hamilton and Katie Ledford are running the 117th Boston Marathon on April 15, 2013 to raise money for Exodus Homes to help them continue their great work with homeless recovering people returning to the community from treatment centers and prison. Exodus Homes provides a comprehensive array of services that emphasizes work and productivity as the path to wholeness. This is Angela’s third Boston Marathon and Katie’s first. They are excited to run together as a way to raise awareness that recovery from addiction and incarceration is indeed a marathon-not a sprint!
