“Third time’s the charm!” For the third consecutive year, the FCBA has formed a team to participate in the Lawyers Have Heart benefit walk/run. This year it will be held Saturday, June 13 at 7:15 a.m. at Washington Harbour in Georgetown. Team members can choose from a 10k race, 5k run, or fun walk. This is the largest single charitable event of the DC legal community and brings together more than 300 organizations and over 6,000 runners and walkers in support of the American Heart Association. We hope that you will join us. Runners and walkers of all ages, fitness levels, and speeds are welcome!
The early registration fee is $45. There is no fundraising commitment, although contributions and fundraising are welcomed. To join the FCBA team, search or use the pull down list to find “Federal Communications Bar Association” on the Register tab of the Lawyers Have Heart website: http://lawyershaveheartdc.org/.
With a couple of years behind us, we are developing some “traditions.” As in past years, the FCBA team intends to schedule some practice runs in Spring 2020 and at the Annual Seminar. We plan to order custom t-shirts to make it easy for FCBA team members to pick each other out of the crowd and have a remembrance and recognition of your support of this worthy cause. And another favorite we plan to repeat is a brunch to gather together after the run/walk.
The FCBA team fielded over 20 runners/walkers in Lawyers Have Heart in both 2018 and 2019, making us one of the largest teams. FCBA members participated at all three levels, with more than half running the 10k. One came from as far away as Puerto Rico! Let’s make 2020 even better than our past years!
