Members of the Jacksonville Bar Association representing large law firms, alternative dispute resolution and solo/small firms are in a battle to see who can garner the most support for Freed to Run 6.0.
The event, created by attorney Mike Freed, is expected to fully fund an endowment for Jacksonville Area Legal Aid’s Northeast Florida Medical Legal Partnership this November.
In the three-way showdown, teams called Too Big to Fail (Big Law), Neutrals Never Quit (JBA Alternative Dispute Resolution Practitioners Committee) and Too Small to Fall (Solo and Small-Firm Committee) are competing to determine who can sign up the most JBA members, run the most aggregate miles and raise the most money.
Each group will field a relay team to run in the last of the six Freed to Run marathons, which will cross the finish line at the Duval County Courthouse on Nov. 19.
All donations are matched at 125% by Baptist Health up to $1.25 million.
With the match, the six-year fundraising total is expected to reach the goal of $2.25 million to fully fund the endowment.
