Garcia Nelson is training with friends for an upcoming 10K run. This is not just an everyday dream. For Nelson, a recovered heroin addict and a resident of a mission for other addicts in Grand Rapids, Michigan, it is a special achievement.

“I’m tired of being a quitter. This is about being a finisher,” said Nelson.

Nelson is thankful to God for his second chance. His faith has played a huge part in his recovery and in his determination to finish the 10K run.
