Race for Justice 5K Run/Walk
The 2016 Coughlin & Gerhart Race for Justice 5K Run/Walk to Benefit Legal Aid Society of Mid-New York took place on Sunday October 16 with kickoff at the Court Street Bridge/Peacemaker Stage.
More than 200 runners, walkers, and volunteers assembled at the Peacemaker Stage in Binghamton New York to show support for the Legal Aid Society of Mid-New York, Inc.
The race featured awards by age, top three male/female finishers, the Justice Trophy to the fastest averaged team, and the Justice Award to the group with the greatest number of participants. That award went to Binghamton University which had over 30 student participants among three student groups: Binghamton University Red Cross Club, Omicron Sigma Pi Sorority, and BU Women’s Tennis Team.
The event was also well represented by area law firms—with twelve firm sponsors and several attorneys competing for the Justice Cup, including teams from Coughlin & Gerhart and Hinman Howard & Kattell.
The Legal Aid Society was joined by its community partner, the Binghamton Vet Center, whose members also competed in the event.
The event was broadcast live by Magic 101.7 and Dana Potter, and there were great tunes by Russ the BIG Guy. Chip timing was provided by Kirby's Race Timing on the USA Track & Field Certified race course.. Galaxy Brewing Company provided the after party refreshments and raffled off some of its choice beers. A good time was had by all!
