Last night, JOHNLEONARD took part in its 6th annual Lawyers Have Heart 5K to raise funds and support the American Heart & American Stroke Association. The road race took place in Boston’s Seaport District and brought together 2,200 participants from over 100 local law firms and companies.
JOHNLEONARD has been committed to both raising funds and leading active lifestyles in support of a cause that is near to our hearts. Our team fundraised and contributed to the over $350,000 raised by the event and pushed their limits during the race. Our President, Derek McKinley, finished the race in just under 25 minutes!
At this year’s race, JOHNLEONARD proudly sponsored the Tribute Tent, a place where participants could fill out an honorary running bib in tribute to a loved one. The moving stories shared with us from the many participants affirmed our commitment to help build healthier lives.
Each year, our participation in Lawyers Have Heart allows us to grow closer as a team, uniting to fight back against heart disease and stroke. If you would like to join us in our mission to make a difference in the lives of those affected by this, The American Heart Association is always accepting donations.
