NORMAN – Runners are invited to participate in Race Judicata, an annual 5K race and fundraiser sponsored by the Student Bar Association at the University of Oklahoma College of Law, Sunday, Nov. 4, 2012, at 2 p.m. The event unites OU Law students, graduates and the local community to support two programs providing free legal aid.
Registration is $25 before Oct. 31 and $35 from Nov. 1 through day of the event. Registered participants will receive a T-shirt and goody bag. Race Judicata is a family-friendly event; dogs and children are welcome. Race Judicata will be timed, and top finishers will be recognized with an award. The event will also include music and a cookout following the race.
Race Judicata is made possible by generous support from sponsors, and donations are welcome. Proceeds from this year’s race will support the OU Legal Clinic’s Cindy Foley Scholarship and Oklahoma Lawyers for Children. The Cindy Foley Scholarship goes to students who work in the OU Legal Clinic, providing representation to people who could otherwise not afford it. Oklahoma Lawyers for Children works with more than 1,000 attorneys and volunteers to protect the rights of abused, neglected and deprived children in Oklahoma County.
“Race Judicata is a great way to spend time with friends at OU while raising money for programs dedicated to public service,” said OU Law Dean Joe Harroz. “This race is growing and has become a meaningful annual, community event, and I look forward to participating again this year.”
