Rain or shine, prepare to pound the pavement by participating in Penn State Law’s Race Judicata 5K to benefit the Penn State Dickinson Public Interest Law Fund (PILF). The race will be held at University Park on Sunday, April 12, 2015.
Established by law students in the fall of 1990, PILF is dedicated to promoting student interest and community involvement in the field of public interest law. Every summer, PILF funds several fellowships for students to offer their legal services to organizations that would not be able to host them otherwise. Organizations where fellows have worked in the past include the International Criminal Tribunal, the Disability Rights Legal Center, and the National Clearinghouse for the Defense of Battered Women.
The race is open to law students, staff, faculty, alumni and friends of the Penn State community. Runners and walkers alike are encouraged to come out and show their support. Strollers and leashed dogs are welcome, too. The race will begin and end at the Lewis Katz Building located just north of the intersection of Bigler Road and Park Avenue. All participants are asked to check in at the start/finish point between 8:00 and 8:30 a.m. on the day of the race which will begin at 9:00 a.m.
Interested runners and walkers can complete and submit the online race form at the link below. The entry fee for registrations is $20 and includes a race T-shirt if registered by March 26, 2015.
