Nearly 20 attorneys and staff members recently participated in the 14th annual Chicago Volunteer Legal Services Foundation (CVLS) “Race Judicata Sprint for Justice 5K Run & Walk,” held along Lake Michigan in downtown Chicago.

The CVLS raised a record-breaking $150,000 at last year’s race and, thanks to the participation of over 3,000 runners and walkers, surpassed that amount in 2007.

“With our support and participation, CVLS had its most successful Race Judicata yet, and raised substantial funds to support its efforts to provide pro bono help to Chicago's working poor,” said Partner Daniel J. Winters, Captain of the Firm’s team.  “Jenner & Block has once again showed its strong support for the CVLS and its outstanding work for the Chicago community,” he added.

Since 1964, the CVLS has offered quality free legal services to low income Chicagoans who could not otherwise afford access to the law.  Proceeds from Race Judicata will support the CVLS’s mission.
