At Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys, we are dedicated to helping raise awareness about traumatic Brain Injury. This year we sponsored our very own James Roswold and Jennifer Roswold, Heather Lottmann, Robert Adams, and Glenda Seeger in the 24th Annual Amy Thompson Run to Daylight. The event was held on Memorial Day-May 30, 2011 at the Loose Park Pavilion in Kansas City, Missouri. The race has been held every year since 1988 in support of victims of serious brain injuries.
There are two separate races held-- the 8K and the 2-mile Run/Walk. There is also a kiddie walk. James, Robert and Glenda ran the 8K (4.97 miles) while Jennifer and Heather took part in the 2 mile race. The weather was hot but, everyone still had fun at this extremely popular Kansas City charity event. Over 1,000 participants showed up for this year's festivities. The amazing thing about this race is the wide age range of the runners who take part. This year's youngest was 8 years-old, while the oldest participant was in his eighties! Congratulations to everyone who was involved in this important event that raised an extremely generous amount of money for brain injury awareness.
It was an incredibly rewarding experience for all of us! Afterwards, the racers retreated to a law firm barbecue and pool party including attorney Vic Finkelstein and his wife Laurie.
Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys is a proud supporter of the Greater Kansas City Brain Injury Association. We have substantial experience helping traumatic brain injury victims and their families in the event of a tragic accident. In fact, earlier this year, experienced Kansas City Personal Injury Lawyers James Roswold, Heather Lottmann, and Vic Finkelstein were pleased to secure a $3 million settlement for a local family as part of their latest brain injury case resolution.
As much as we feel it is our duty to protect victims of brain injury, we know it is just as important to give back to the community.
