(ABC 6 News) -- From defeat to the triumph of success, hundreds of people in Rochester were inspired by testimonies from those who are recovering at Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge.
Thursday night, the non-profit hosted its annual gala, a chance for the community to hear about the success of the program, and just how far participants have come.
Kelly has been a part of Adult and Teen Challenge for several months, and tonight she shared her story of how she has overcome addiction.
“For my whole life I have been surviving and for the first time in my life, I’m thriving. For the first time in my life, I have goals and dreams. Because I thought that I was too old, I thought that I was never going to accomplish them so I just didn't think about them because I didn't think it would be possible. Without teen challenge, I wouldn't be up here,” said Kelly.
ABC 6 News was a proud sponsor of the event Thursday night. Our Betsy Singer was the emcee.
