Welcome to my blog at LeoneLegal.com. I will be periodically blogging about legal issues and updates in the law, and discussing how you may be affected. Also, I will blog about current events or other topics which are in the news. Today, however, I want to blog about Goldy’s Run, which is a 10 mile, 5K or Kid’s Run being held on the University of Minnesota’s campus next month.
Now you may be wondering why I’m blogging about a running event on a law firm website. Well, there are a couple reasons. First, and foremost, it is about who will benefit from the proceeds of this event. Being a father of two young children it is heartbreaking to see any child in need of medical care. However, it is good to know that there are hospitals, such as the Amplatz Children’s Hospital at the University of Minnesota. The proceeds from this race will help support the hospital in their groundbreaking research, surgeries, and treatments. It was Amplatz Children’s Hospital where the first successful pediatric blood marrow transplant was performed, as well as the first infant heart transplant in Minnesota.
It is also at Amplatz Children’s Hospital where a friend of our family has spent a lot of long hours recently. Her son underwent a succesful surgery when he was only four days old and I am happy to say that he is now on his road to recovery. The doctors, nurses, and staff perform miracles on a daily basis, so lets help support them with this wonderful event.
Now for the second reason why I’m writing about Goldy’s Run…..It’s a run through the University of Minnesota campus on a nice spring morning. Take advantage of the Minnesota weather and visit one of the best college campuses in the country. The event will be family friendly and the kids will love running in the Kid’s Run and meeting Goldy Gopher.
And finally, all the races end on the 50 yard line of the new TCF Bank Stadium and your picture will appear on the scoreboard as you cross the finish line.
Now for the information on Goldy’s Run:
