VLSP Bike/Walk-a-Thon Raises Over $14,000!

 

The Fifth Annual VLSP Bike-a-Thon/Walk-a-Thon took place on Saturday, July 21 at Crissy Field. Through contributions from participants and their sponsors, VLSP was able to raise $14,300.

The event was a lot of fun for everyone who participated, including lawyers and law firm staff. Morgan, Lewis & Bockius raised the most money with $3,021 and other participating law firms included Keker & Van Nest, Paul Hastings, Bryan Cave, Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, Reed Smith, Shartsis Friese, Latham & Watkins, Morrison Foerster, and the BASF Barristers.
VLSP would like to give special thanks to the event’s top fundraisers: Grace So of Morgan, Lewis & Bockius and Fabrice Vincent of Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein.

Participants chose between two routes: an easy one of about 2-3 miles for bikers and walkers, and another more advanced route for bikers of 20-30 miles going across the Golden Gate Bridge, through the Marin Headlands, past Fort Cronkhite and back to Crissy Field.

Food donations were generously provided by Safeway, Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Canyon Market, Sports Basement, Peet’s Coffee, and Starbucks.

The money raised will go to VLSP to support of its various projects which provide legal and social services to low income residents in San Francisco.

Thanks to everyone who biked, walked, donated and cheered!
