Lawyers Have Heart, which will be held Saturday, June 8 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 is $45. 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 in Spring 2019. Weather permitting, and regardless if you have registered for the race, we want to join for a practice run on Sunday, February 10 at 12 Noon, so contact the co-captains ASAP if you are interested! 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.
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!
