'Run for Recovery' to lift spirits, stigma

A former Frederick County Drug Treatment Court participant is organizing a Run for Recovery in Frederick to raise money for the program. The run will be held Saturday at Monocacy Village Park. From left are organizers Paul Lively; Korey Shorb and his daughter, Kalynn; and Jennifer Myers. 

A few years ago, it was the lure of a small gift card that would help keep Korey Shorb out of trouble.

A participant in the county’s Drug Treatment Court, Shorb knew that if he could keep his act together on weekends, he might be rewarded at his next court appearance.
