JTWT participates in Houston Bar Association 2014 Fun Run
Johnson Trent was a proud sponsor of the John J. Eikenburg Annual Law Week Fun Run which occurred on March 22. The annual event benefits The Center, serving adults with developmental disabilities. There were over 500 registered runners this year.
This year a big congratulations to our super speedy team of Sherry Bankhead, Chris Trent and Carter Stern who took home the 2nd place award for Coed Team and Overall. In addition, Sherry won first place in her age group.
Race events included an individual 8K race, an 8K team competition, a one mile non-competitive children’s run, and a one mile family walk. All events began at Sam Houston Park. All events are open to the public. Post-event festivities in Sam Houston Park featured live music, refreshments, an awards ceremony honoring the winners, and drawings for prizes donated by local merchants. All participants received commemorative tech running shirts.
The Center is a private, nonprofit United Way agency that provides education, job training, socialization, and health care to developmentally disabled persons. Over the past 29 years, the Eikenburg Law Week Fun Run has raised more than $1 million for The Center.
