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. Being dedicated to a genre keeps it alive until the masses catch up to the "trend." Kent and Bill are keepin' it LIVE!! Thank you gentlemen..you know your JAZZ.

  2. Hemp has very little THC which is needed to kill cancer cells! Growing cannabis plants for THC inside a hemp field will not work...where is the fear? From not really knowing about Cannabis and Hemp or just not listening to the people teaching you through testimonies and packets of info over the last few years! Wake up Hoosier law makers!

  3. If our State Government would sue for their rights to grow HEMP like Kentucky did we would not have these issues. AND for your INFORMATION many medical items are also made from HEMP. FOOD, FUEL,FIBER,TEXTILES and MEDICINE are all uses for this plant. South Bend was built on Hemp. Our states antiquated fear of cannabis is embarrassing on the world stage. We really need to lead the way rather than follow. Some day.. we will have freedom in Indiana. And I for one will continue to educate the good folks of this state to the beauty and wonder of this magnificent plant.

  4. Put aside all the marijuana concerns, we are talking about food and fiber uses here. The federal impediments to hemp cultivation are totally ridiculous. Preposterous. Biggest hemp cultivators are China and Europe. We get most of ours from Canada. Hemp is as versatile as any crop ever including corn and soy. It's good the governor laid the way for this, regrettable the buffoons in DC stand in the way. A statutory relic of the failed "war on drugs"

  5. Cannabis is GOOD for our PEOPLE and GOOD for our STATE... 78% would like to see legal access to the product line for better Hoosier Heath. There is a 25% drop in PAIN KILLER Overdoses in states where CANNABIS is legal.
