Firm co-sponsors charter school 5K race fundraiser

PROVIDENCE (April 16, 2012) – The firm is co-sponsoring a 5K race fundraiser benefiting Blackstone Academy Charter School to be held April 28.

Proceeds from the “Born To Run” 5K run/walk road race in Slater Park in Pawtucket, R.I. are expected to benefit health and wellness activities at the school, which serves students from Pawtucket and Central Falls, R.I.

Numerous firm attorneys and administrative staff, along with family members, participated in the Born To Run race held last year, which the firm sponsored. Blackstone Academy is a client of the firm.

“We are proud to continue our sponsorship and participation in this important event, which not only helps to raise funds for the school but also reinforces to students how important it is to stay fit and active,” said partner Matt Plain.
