We run for health, and we run to raise funds for life-saving research and education on heart disease and stroke. That’s the motivation behind Thompson Coburn’s now seven-year sponsorship of Lawyers Have Heart (LHH) 10K Run & 5K Run & Fun Walk, the premier athletic philanthropic event led by the greater Washington, D.C., legal community.
LHH brings together more than 300 law firms, legal organizations and vendors and over 6,000 runners and walkers in support of the American Heart Association. Since 1991, the event has raised more than $12 million for the AHA and is now one of the largest 10K races in the D.C. metro area.
Each year, the attorneys and staff in Thompson Coburn's D.C. office gather family and friends, strap on their sneakers, and join the throngs of runners/walkers from the D.C. legal community at the start of the race. The cause is a personal one for many of us who have been directly impacted by heart disease and stroke, including partner Tony Anderson, a heart attack survivor.
In addition, partner Emily Wang Murphy is serving as co-chair of the LHH campaign for 2018.
“The American Heart Association’s work impacts all of us with vital health education and guidelines, standardization of care in health systems and breakthroughs in medicine like the pacemaker,” Emily said. “This cause is vital, and I look forward to seeing more people than ever at the starting line in 2018!”
