Congratulations and thank you to all of the participants of the fifth annual Race4Justice, held Saturday, June 18, 2016. The course for a 5K run and one mile walk took participants through downtown Toledo.
Justin Riffle took first place overall with a time of 16:15. Elizabeth Watson won the overall female division with a time of 19:30.
The Race4Justice is coordinated by ABLE and LAWO’s Emerging Leaders Council, a group of attorneys who are the next generation of leaders in the legal community.
It is the role of the Emerging Leaders Council to support the work and mission of Legal Aid through professional development, pro bono participation, and other ways that will raise awareness of these important community resources.
Proceeds from the Race for Justice will help Legal Aid’s Medical-Legal Partnership for Children (MLPC) program to serve more children and families.
The MLPC is a partnership among pediatric, obstetric, and mental health providers and poverty law attorneys working to improve the health and well being of underserved children and families in Toledo and Lucas County.
