For the 5th consecutive year, the JOHNLEONARD crew put on their running shoes to support the American Heart & American Stroke Association. The 8th annual “Lawyers Have Heart” 5K road race took place in Boston’s Seaport District on June 30th.Our Direct Hire Manager, Rob Harvie, was proudly recognized as one of ten honorable members for his fundraising efforts. The team as a whole surpassed their group fundraising goal, helping to contribute to the overall $300,000 the race raised.
Derek McKinley finished as one of the top runners in the 5K by completing the race in 23 minutes and 15 seconds, as well as coming in first place on our team. He didn’t run without competition though, as Rob Harvie and Robert Coughlin also placed with top performance times!
JOHNLEONARD utilizes this event not only as a time to bond and engage in physical activity, but most importantly to fulfill a commitment to raising awareness about heart disease and stroke. Also, just because the race is over, doesn’t mean it is too late to donate!
