IBA: Join the IndyBar at Komen Race for the Cure

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrint

The Indianapolis Bar Association has formed a team for the upcoming Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure to be held on Saturday, April 16. IndyBar members, families and friends are invited to participate and support the cause by joining the IndyBar team or by making a donation toward the team.

The Komen Race for the Cure is an annual 5k run/walk is one of Indiana’s largest non-profit events. In fact, Central Indiana hosts the sixth largest Race for the Cure in the world out of 121 affiliates. The funds raised are awarded to grantees providing education, screening and support services in twenty-one Central Indiana counties and funding research seeking a cure for breast cancer.

Through the support of Dean Gary Roberts, the IndyBar team has been given permission to gather at the Indiana University School of Law entrance. Members of IndyBar’s Helping Enrich Attorney’s Lives (HEAL) Committee will be on hand providing IndyBar t-shirts to all members stopping by the law school prior to the start of the run/walk which is scheduled for 9:10 a.m. T-shirt handouts will begin at 8:00 a.m.

“So many of us in the Bar have sought ways to give support to friends and family that have been confronted with breast cancer,” said IndyBar President Mike Hebenstreit who will be leading the IndyBar group.

“It’s my hope that members of the Bar looking for an opportunity to show their support will join us at the race. It should also be a great way to renew acquaintances and make new ones,“ said Hebenstreit.

To join the team or to make a donation, log on to the Komen Race for the Cure Indianapolis website. The Bar’s team name is “IndyBar”.

Any questions prior to race day should be directed to Mary Kay Price at the IndyBar office by calling 317.269.2000 or emailing mprice@indybar.org.•

  1. Frankly, it is tragic that you are even considering going to an expensive, unaccredited "law school." It is extremely difficult to get a job with a degree from a real school. If you are going to make the investment of time, money, and tears into law school, it should not be to a place that won't actually enable you to practice law when you graduate.

  2. As a lawyer who grew up in Fort Wayne (but went to a real law school), it is not that hard to find a mentor in the legal community without your school's assistance. One does not need to pay tens of thousands of dollars to go to an unaccredited legal diploma mill to get a mentor. Having a mentor means precisely nothing if you cannot get a job upon graduation, and considering that the legal job market is utterly terrible, these students from Indiana Tech are going to be adrift after graduation.

  3. 700,000 to 800,000 Americans are arrested for marijuana possession each year in the US. Do we need a new justice center if we decriminalize marijuana by having the City Council enact a $100 fine for marijuana possession and have the money go towards road repair?

  4. I am sorry to hear this.

  5. I tried a case in Judge Barker's court many years ago and I recall it vividly as a highlight of my career. I don't get in federal court very often but found myself back there again last Summer. We had both aged a bit but I must say she was just as I had remembered her. Authoritative, organized and yes, human ...with a good sense of humor. I also appreciated that even though we were dealing with difficult criminal cases, she treated my clients with dignity and understanding. My clients certainly respected her. Thanks for this nice article. Congratulations to Judge Barker for reaching another milestone in a remarkable career.
