Firms Like Fox Rothschild Make 5K a SuccessMarch 2011 – Articles Philadelphia Bar Reporter
The Philadelphia Bar Association encourages local law firms to show their continued support to the Support Center for Child Advocates by participating in the 32nd Annual 5K Run/Walk. This year’s event will be held on Sunday, May 15 at 8:30 a.m. on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive. Fox Rothschild LLP has participated in the legal team competition for many years and fields a number of individual runners.
Abraham C. Reich, a former Bar Association Chancellor, “considers it a privilege to assist the efforts of Child Advocates, which is one of the premiere public service agencies in the country. We are very proud of the high level of involvement of our attorneys both in volunteering as child advocates and participating in the annual 5K.”
Jacqueline G. Segal raised the most pledges for the 5K of any participants in the history of the event. “The Support Center for Child Advocates is the perfect charitable partner because it provides direct services to the children of Philadelphia and also enhances the ability of private practitioners to represent neglected and abused children. As chair of the Family Law Section, I enlisted the help of the Section membership and my colleagues at Fox Rothschild in sponsoring and participating in the annual event. I participate in the race every year, and find it a very rewarding experience.”
Theodore Jobes coordinates the participation of Fox Rothschild lawyers in the event. “The event itself is a fun time and benefits a great cause. We have a friendly rivalry with participating lawyers at other firms,” said Jobes.
Samuel Israel, who volunteers as a child advocate, said, “Child Advocates is an amazing organization. My volunteer work for them is some of the most important and impactful legal work that I do because it has such a direct and immediate impact on the lives of vulnerable children.”
“We look forward to another successful 5K race in 2011 and our continued partnership with Child Advocates,” said Reich.
