BENEFITING: Her Justice
ORGANIZER: Her Justice
EVENT DATE: Mar 20, 2016
My name is Monica Perrigino, and I am so excited and honored to be running the 2016 United Airlines NYC Half Marathon on behalf of Her Justice.
Her Justice provides free legal services in family, divorce and immigration law to women facing poverty and abuse in New York City. The organization recruits volunteer attorneys from the City's top law firms to stand side-by-side with women who cannot afford to pay for a lawyer, giving them a real chance to obtain the legal protections that transform their lives.
I decided to run with the Her Justice team because it seemed like a perfect synthesis of two important areas of my life: my position as a newly licensed attorney and my love of running. I am proud to work at a law firm that is a Corporate Partner of Her Justice and that has consistently been noticed for its commitment to a variety of pro bono initiatives. I am excited that I have an additional opportunity to support Her Justice by running the streets of New York City this March!
I have committed to raising $1500 for this wonderful cause. If you would like to support me by making a donation, please click the "Donate to this Fundraiser" button on my page. Thank you so much! :)
