Please join the Harvard Law School Association of Orange County
in its very first charitable endeavor!
Team HLSA OC
will be running, walking, fundraising, and/or volunteering at the 2013 OC Marathon
the morning of Sunday, May 5, 2013
in support of the worthy charities of the Orange County Bar Foundation, namely:
Shortstop, a juvenile crime diversion program that has more than a 90% success rate in preventing juvenile offenders from committing additional crimes.
Stop Short of Addiction, which addresses the needs of first-time juvenile offenders arrested for drug-related offenses.
The Higher Education Mentoring Program, which helps prepare high school students for college.
Chicas Con Fuerza, an after-school program that prevents HIV infection, delinquency, substance abuse, and other high-risk behaviors in at-risk youth.
Project SELF, which has placed more than 600 low-income high school students as interns at law firms and law-related businesses since 1995.
Madres Unidas, a 14 week program that aims to prevent substance abuse & HIV/AIDS, including by providing HIV/AIDS testing.
Please email us if you are interested so that we may send you more information about the charities, the race, a marathon training opportunity, a coupon code for a discount on race registration fees (registration fees go up on March 14th), and/or a volunteer sign up form.
The OC Marathon can be used as a qualifier for any marathon in the country, including the Boston Marathon.
