From the Office of State Rep. Will Crocker:

Amy Doherty of Centerville was honored at the Unsung Heroine awards today at the State House. Amy was chosen as a 2019 Unsung Heroine for her lifelong advocacy for those struggling with addiction. 

In 2010, Amy and her family joined with Gosnold begin hosting an annual road race in memory of her brother titled the David Lewis 5k - A Celebration of Recovery and Community. Shortly after, Amy established the non-profit WellStrong. The WellStrong studio offers a safe, supportive, sober environment that allows people in all stages of recovery to participate in body and mind exercise activities that have been shown to reduce the rates of relapse. Amy is committed to providing clients with a successful and sustainable life in recovery.
