Benefiting LA County Nonprofit Helping Children in Need

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - September 6, 2010) -  An expected 500+ participants will gather for the Greater Los Angeles Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators Justice Jog 5K on Sunday, October 17, 2010. Law Firm teams will compete for the title of "fastest" law firm in the Los Angeles area.

GLA ALA will organize a 5K Walk/Run to support Shoes That Fit, a nonprofit based in Claremont, CA that provides new shoes and clothing to school children in need. Last year's GLA ALA Justice Jog 5K raised $8,000 for charity with the support of 234 runners, 14 law firm teams and 70 volunteers.

The event joins different sectors of the legal community together, including major LA-based law firms, businesses, athletes, families, members and friends, for a worthy, charitable and fun cause. The event is part of GLA ALA's Community Challenge Weekend (CCW), a community service initiative that encourages the legal community to work together for a local community cause.

The GLA ALA Justice Jog 5K starts at 8 a.m. in Century City located at 10250 Santa Monica Blvd. in the parking lot of the Westfield Century City Shopping Mall.
