WPB - Lawyers Have Heart Inaugural Run


Shutts & Bowen partner, Alfred A. LaSorte, an Executive Board Member of The American Heart Association’s Palm Beach Heart Walk, announced the inaugural Lawyers Have Heart 5K Run, designated exclusively for the legal community, was a big success.  More than 400 runners, including judges, private practice and public service lawyers and legal staff from more than 50  law-related organizations  participated in the run on Saturday, September 26, 2009.

Mr. LaSorte said, “Although heart disease is nothing to laugh about, we wanted to have some fun with the title of the 5K.  Despite popular belief, Lawyers Have Heart and we hope to prove that to the community by raising both awareness and funds for the American Heart Association.”

Shutts & Bowen attorney Matthew R. Chait  was one of the lead fundraisers for the event.  "Since my son was born last year with congenital heart defects, this cause has become very important to me.  My son is thriving now, but the money raised by this great event goes in part towards research to help other kids like my son.”
