Come join us and participate in the Run For Recovery! Challenge yourself by running 3 miles while taking in the views of Barboursville Park. Cabell Huntington Hospital is a sponsor of this event in order to help raise funds and awareness for the Shepherd’s House. Located in Huntington, West Virginia, the Shepherd’s House is a recovery home that helps those who wish to take a biblical approach on their treatment for drug and alcohol addiction. This 6-12month based recovery program is for men, women and children who have been affected by alcohol, drugs, and a criminal background.
