On June 2nd TEAM JOHNLEONARD ran its fourth annual Lawyers Have Heart 5K to raise funds for the American Heart & American Stroke Association. With our largest team ever we gave “the competition” a run for their money with top performance times from Matt Galvin, Eric Lenz and Derek McKinley, raising nearly $2,000 to benefit a Heart Health America. JOHNLEONARD has participated in this race for the last four years, but we have strong historical ties with the American Heart Association going back nearly two decades.
TEAM JOHNLEONARD’s participation in this event began when a family member of one our Staffing Consultants was diagnosed with a heart condition. Since then, we have been actively involved in raising awareness of heart disease & stroke, which takes the lives of over 600,000 people every year in the United States, amounting to one in every four deaths every single year.
As in previous years members of TEAM JOHNEONARD greatly anticipated the fun and fierce competition, and this year was no exception. Not only did runners enjoy the camaraderie and beautiful weather, there was also the usual entertainment value of the "infamous" team T-Shirts! It's commonly known among runners that the real battle for honors is for the best T-shirt concept, a challenge not taken lightly! Check out the competition!
From the starting line enthusiasm all the way through to finish line anguish JOHNLEONARD is dedicated to fighting back and raising awareness to build healthier lives, free from cardiovascular diseases and stroke, one donation at a time.
