Lawyers Have Heart, which will be held Saturday, June 8, 2019, at 7:10 a.m. at Washington Harbor in Georgetown, is a 10k race, 5k run, and fun walk led by the DC legal community that brings together more than 300 organizations and over 6,000 runners and walkers in support of the American Heart Association. For the second consecutive year, the FCBA has formed a team to participate in the event, and we hope that you will join us. Runners and walkers of all ages, fitness levels, and speeds are welcome!
The registration fee (after April 30) is $55. There is no fundraising commitment, although contributions and fundraising are welcomed. To join the FCBA team, search for “Federal Communications Bar Association” on the Register tab of the Lawyers Have Heart website: http://lawyershaveheartdc.org/.
The FCBA team intends to schedule some practice runs. Weather permitting, and regardless if you have registered for the race, contact the co-captains if you are interested in joining us for a practice run! We also intend to order custom t-shirts to make it easy for FCBA team members to pick each other out of the crowd and we will plan a brunch to gather together after the run/walk. LMI Advisors has graciously agreed to sponsor the FCBA Lawyers Have Heart t-shirt purchase this year. We will order the t-shirts in early to mid-May at the latest, so please register now to ensure that you will have a t-shirt!
In 2018, the FCBA team participated in Lawyers Have Heart for the first time. Over 20 runners and walkers registered for the 2018 FCBA team. FCBA members participated at all three levels, with more than half running the 10k. After the run/walk, the 2018 FCBA team met for breakfast at Dean & DeLuca. Let’s make 2019 even better than our inaugural year!
