2020 TCS New York City Marathon

The Legal Aid Society is proud to take part in the 2020 TCS New York City Marathon on Sunday, November 1st!

This year’s team includes:

Emily Davis – The Legal Aid Society, Criminal Defense Practice
Haley Eakin
– Metropolitan Center for Mental Health
Sara Ivry – Freelance Editor/Writer
Erin O’Reilly – Accenture
Cathy Tische – Awaken Studios

Over the last seven years, Team LAS runners have raced through the five boroughs of New York City totaling over 940 miles and raising $149,000 for our Civil Practice.

When you run for Team LAS, you join a community of advocates who have run for justice, equality and an end to the barriers that keep low income New Yorkers from finding stability and security in the lives. With each mile run, and every dollar raised, we are able to extend our reach into the most vulnerable communities of our city.

We are proud to invite Legal Aid Society staff, supporters and friends to join us as we #RunForJustice!

For more information, please email Matthew Hanifin in the Development Office or call 212-577-3268.

About the Civil Practice

The Civil Practice assists low-income clients with civil legal matters that have an immediate and direct impact on their everyday lives. We enhance family and community stability by helping clients obtain and maintain the basic necessities of life such as housing, healthcare, food and subsistence income. Unfortunately, there is a much greater need for the services of our Civil Practice than can presently be fulfilled. For every client the Practice can help, there are a substantial number of low-income New Yorkers we must turn away due to lack of funding.
