Wayne Law charity Ambulance Chase 5K planned Sept. 26

September 06, 2013

DETROIT -- Lace up your shoes and get ready for the 28th annual Ambulance Chase Charity Run/Walk at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26, at Wayne State University Law School.

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. Participants (typically about 250) actually chase an ambulance, poking fun at the stereotype of the ambulance-chasing lawyer.

The course — three laps around the campus, roughly 5 kilometers or 2.2 miles — is run entirely on sidewalks starting at the law school, 471 W. Palmer St. The cost of the event is $25, which includes a T-shirt and a post-race barbecue dinner.

Register online at go.wayne.edu/ambulancechase.

Race headquarters will be inside the law school’s main entrance at the Spencer M. Partrich Auditorium, where participants can check in starting at 4 p.m. on race day and pick up their packets.

Race day registrants are not guaranteed T-shirts.

For those who opt to run instead of walk, finish times will be recorded and posted immediately after the race by Everal Race Management.

For more details, contact Kathy Fox at (313) 577-8038 or foxk@wayne.edu.
