Organized by the Cuban American Bar Association (“CABA”), “Lawyers on the Run” is a family friendly 5K run/walk open to everyone in our community (lawyers and non-lawyers alike) with a dual purpose: to raise awareness of the importance of health and well-being in the legal profession and to raise funds to ensure that access to justice remains a reality for all in South Florida.
This event raises money to support the Pro Bono Project, which offers free bilingual legal services to our local indigent community. The Pro Bono Project was established by CABA in 1984 to provide the neediest members of minority communities with access to our court system and adequate voluntary legal representation. The Project was nationally recognized as a Point of Light by President George H.W. Bush in 1992. In order to sustain and expand this worthwhile cause, we need your support. Register today!
At this year’s 5K, we will be hosting a Kiddie Corner! The Kiddie Corner will have plenty of fun activities for kids including an Easter egg hunt. Latin Grammy Award-Winning Singer/Songwriter, Angie Chirino will be performing the national anthem. Finally, EACH PERSON WHO REGISTERS is entered for a chance to win a $900 GIFT CERTIFICATE FROM W. HOTEL in Ft Lauderdale.
The event will be held on Saturday, April 4th of 2015. All proceeds from Lawyers on the Run go to benefit CABA’s Pro Bono Project.
