‘Hundreds of lawyers sent running’

|Written By Gail J. Cohen

Hundreds of runners and walkers, many of them judges and lawyers, gathered in Ottawa at lunchtime today to participate in the 17th annual Law Day 5 KM Fun Run/Walk. Proceeds from the run will be donated to the Ottawa Lawyers Feed the Hungry program, which pairs local lawyers with the Ottawa Mission to serve meals to some of the city’s most vulnerable residents.

Supreme Court of Canada Justice Michael Moldaver got things going by firing the starting pistol. As Ottawa Law Day co-chairman Eugene Meehan quipped: “SCC judge points (starting) pistol in air, hundreds of lawyers sent running.” Once pulling the trigger, then Moldaver took off and ran the whole race!
