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”.
