To benefit the Coalition for Homelessness Intervention and Prevention (CHIP) and the IU-Kenya partnership, Ron Katz of Indianapolis firm Katz & Korin will host his annual Ronnie's Rosh Hashanah Run & Walk on Labor Day, Sept. 3, in Carmel.

Each year, the run benefits two charities, and a check to the charity of the runner or walker's choice goes directly to the charity through Katz. This year the two charities are Indiana University Foundation (IU/Kenya Partnership), which focuses on HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention in Kenya, and/or CHIP, which is working to end homelessness in Indianapolis.

The run will begin at 9 a.m. at West Park in Carmel. The park is about 1/4 mile west of Towne Road on the north side of 116th Street. The course is about 5K. Participants are asked to respond to Katz by Aug. 22 along with their T-shirt size: XXL, XL, L, M, or S.

Katz' partners at Katz & Korin support this event by joining Katz in underwriting 100 percent of the costs associated with it.

The requested minimum contribution is $50 per person. One could write a check to each charity or a check to just one. Lower amounts for donations are also accepted for participants. Breakfast will be served following the run and walk.

Ronnie's Rosh Hashanah Run began as a way of commemorating the Jewish New Year (which will mark year 5768 on the Jewish calendar as the sun sets Sept. 12) by supporting organizations that excel in their mission of tikkun olam, repairing the world.

If you cannot participate but wish to contribute to the IU/Kenya Partnership and/or CHIP, mail check(s) to Katz: Ronald M. Katz, Katz & Korin PC, The Emelie Building, 334 N. Senate Ave., Indianapolis, IN 46204-1708.

For more information about the run, Katz can also be reached by his e-mail.

  1. Thank you, John Smith, for pointing out a needed correction. The article has been revised.

  2. The "National institute for Justice" is an agency for the Dept of Justice. That is not the law firm you are talking about in this article. The "institute for justice" is a public interest law firm. http://ij.org/ thanks for interesting article however

  3. I would like to try to find a lawyer as soon possible I've had my money stolen off of my bank card driver pressed charges and I try to get the information they need it and a Social Security board is just give me a hold up a run around for no reason and now it think it might be too late cuz its been over a year I believe and I can't get the right information they need because they keep giving me the runaroundwhat should I do about that

  4. It is wonderful that Indiana DOC is making some truly admirable and positive changes. People with serious mental illness, intellectual disability or developmental disability will benefit from these changes. It will be much better if people can get some help and resources that promote their health and growth than if they suffer alone. If people experience positive growth or healing of their health issues, they may be less likely to do the things that caused them to come to prison in the first place. This will be of benefit for everyone. I am also so happy that Indiana DOC added correctional personnel and mental health staffing. These are tough issues to work with. There should be adequate staffing in prisons so correctional officers and other staff are able to do the kind of work they really want to do-helping people grow and change-rather than just trying to manage chaos. Correctional officers and other staff deserve this. It would be great to see increased mental health services and services for people with intellectual or developmental disabilities in the community so that fewer people will have to receive help and support in prisons. Community services would like be less expensive, inherently less demeaning and just a whole lot better for everyone.

  5. Can I get this form on line,if not where can I obtain one. I am eligible.
