Ambulance Chase 5K at Wayne Law raises money for charity

October 2, 2013

DETROIT — A total of 85 people, 57 of them runners, participated in the 28th annual Ambulance Chase Charity Run/Walk on Thursday, Sept. 26, at Wayne State University Law School.

Runners and walkers began the 5K by actually chasing an ambulance, poking fun at the stereotype of the ambulance-chasing lawyer.

The event, sponsored by the Wayne Law Student Bar Association Board of Governors, helps support that group and also benefits Cass Community Social Services, a Detroit charity helping those in need.

Placing first in the race was Jack Burke, 24, of Detroit with a total time of 19:51. First-place female finisher was Barbara Lanning, 23, of Clawson with an overall time of 22:39.
