Chuhak & Tecson employees run for the law
As part of its continuing initiative to give back to the community, attorneys and staff from Chuhak & Tecson, P.C. will participate in the 20th Annual Race Judicata on Thursday, September 12. The 5k walk/run held along Lake Michigan benefits Chicago Volunteer Legal Services Foundation.
CVLS is an organization of over 3,000 volunteer attorneys who provide free legal services to low-income Chicago residents. These volunteers make a positive impact on the lives of their clients by donating their time and efforts to those who otherwise would not have access to legal representation.
Since its founding in 1964, CVLS has served more than 18,000 low-income Chicagoans, handling more litigation and family law cases than any other legal aid program in Illinois. All proceeds from Race Judicata go toward general operating costs of CVLS and the organization’s goal of providing equal access to justice for all.
Last year’s race drew almost 4,000 participants from the Chicagoland area. This year, CVLS hopes to have over 5,000 people participate, which would make it the biggest event to date.
