Run for Justice Rocks the Ravine

More than 400 runners from 30 different law firms and companies hit the hills of Chavez Ravine for the 8th annual Run for Justice at Dodger Stadium. One pushed his 20-month-old son across the finish line in a high-speed baby stroller. For others, finishing the demanding 5K course was a personal milestone and a way to support Public Counsel's work.

"Everyone from partners to staff people wanted to join together," said Gail Title, a partner at Katten Muchin Rosenman, which sent a record 47 people.

"This is a great event, and I knew I had to get my family involved," said Danielle Neveu of Navigant, who personally raised more than $2,400.

Navigant sponsored the Dodger Stadium clubhouse where the teams gathered before the run. Managing Director Richard Finkelman said supporting Public Counsel was "beyond a fair trade ... it's about doing the right thing."
