Personal glory is not the purpose of this historic trek. Instead, Icebreaker will invite the world to meet a group of runners that has struggled mightily with demons of every kind; enduring overdoses, incarceration and debilitating depression before finding a better life through recovery and running. They chose to call it Icebreaker because they plan to have a running conversation with America as they run from coast to coast. And this will break the ice to get others sharing and finding their path to recovery. VoiceAmerica | Talk Radio | Online Talk Radio studio@voiceamerica.com false DD/MM/YYYY Add to Calendar
