Kelly Striefel, Executive Director of the “and Justice for all” campaign, joined us to talk about the upcoming Law Day 5k Run and Walk.
The University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law will host the 37th Annual Law Day 5K Run and Walk on May 4, 2019. The theme this year is free speech, free press and free society. The run itself is an official USA Track Field and Field certified course winding through the scenic University of Utah campus. Sports-Am will provide timing chips for runners competing in a variety of divisions including gender, age, stroller, wheelchair, and even a chaise lounge division. The entire family can enjoy the race, and everyone receives a prize.
Last year, this event attracted over 1,200 participants and raised more than $40,000 for civil legal aid programs in Utah. “and Justice for all” is committed to providing civil legal services, free of charge, for Utah’s most vulnerable citizens – people living in poverty, individuals with disabilities, veterans, seniors, minorities and victims of domestic violence. They work with law firms, attorneys, judges, legal staff and other community partners to help ensure that Utahns across the state have access to the legal system, regardless of income level, disability, age or minority status.
Registration is $30 prior to April 27th and $35 thereafter, including on race day. All funds raised will go to the much needed programs that serve people in this community. This event is a great way to engage with community and educate them on the importance of access to legal services in this community, and a fun way to give back to those in need.
