As part of Lochner’s Giving Back Initiative, employees throughout the firm participate in an annual group service project that benefits the local communities in which they live, work, and play. This week, we are featuring the volunteer efforts of our Tampa office in the St. Jude 5k Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer, an annual marathon held to raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. On September 14, Tampa employees met at the Amalie Arena in downtown Tampa, where twelve Lochner staff participated in the marathon.
The Tampa St. Jude 5k Walk/Run is one of several St. Jude marathons scheduled across the nation during September’s Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. All proceeds go to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, whose mission is to “advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.” As a result of donations, patients are treated at no cost.
