Project Description

Andy & Julie Rogers
Port Orchard, WA

Running the Boston Marathon for Herren Project as a couple symbolizes the life that we have chosen together in Recovery: Love, Hope, Connection, Sacrifice & Service.

Our past and our families are littered with the wreckage that is left in the wake of generations of struggle with addiction. Health issues, family turmoil, divorce, overdose, jail, and death. We, and many other family members, have found our path to sobriety. We are living proof that everything changes in recovery.

Recovery and Running are two threads that weave through our relationship and life. Our very first run together was in Boston along the Charles River in 2014. We had grown up together, attended the same schools, but were complete strangers. We had never really talked to each other until 2014 and it was an article about recovery that brought us together. Running the Boston Marathon for the Herren Project brings us full circle along our Heroes Journey.

As Ambassadors, we could not be me more grateful to have the opportunity to share our experience, strength, and hope. Herren Project has helped thousands of families like ours and knowing that the funds we are raising will have such an impact inspires us to do more. We have been given a gift and it is a privilege to share it with others.
