Cooper Hurley Supported Larchmont RAT Race and Other Good Causes
Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers supports many good causes in the Hampton Roads community and beyond.
We were happy to recently make a contribution to the very successful Larchmont Elementary School RAT Race. The 35th annual Larchmont Run At Twilight (RAT) is an enduring tradition in Norfolk. It attracted hundreds of runners.
The event includes a one-mile race for children and young adults as well as a 5K for those who want to stretch their legs a bit more.
Both the one-mile race and the 5k race are timed using the latest chip technology, and the courses run through the streets of one of some of Norfolk’s most established neighborhoods as well as through a portion of the Old Dominion University campus.
Cooper Hurley sponsors the event every year. You can read more about the Larchmont RAT race here and see a full list of the sponsors.
Elise Chard, RAT Race Sponsorship Chair wrote to us to say the event raised more than $25,000.
“The money will be used throughout the school year to provide support to educational programs, instructional equipment, and enhance the overall student experience. Community members like you are the reason the school is successful,” she wrote.
Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers supported a large number of good community causes this year.
We gave a check for $500 to ForKids, the Norfolk-based non-profit that helps homeless children at the end of our Facebook ‘likes’ campaign in the summer. We donated $1 for every like. In the fall we are supporting Sugar Plum Bakery in Virginia Beach in our Facebook 'likes' campaign, a non-profit that supports adults with disabilities.
Sugar Plum Bakery on Laskin Road has been promoting the integration of people with developmental disabilities into the workforce by providing jobs and training since 1987.
“We strive to increase community awareness of the worth of people with disabilities,” said Sugar Plum Executive Director Patricia Rakes Clark.
“It is important to utilize the different skills of this often undervalued population into our lives. We have created a successful unique business model where people with developmental and intellectual disabilities successfully work in the integrated environment that is Sugar Plum Bakery,” she said.
Earlier this year, we supported Ghent Your Game On, a fundraising event for the Ohef Sholom Temple in Norfolk. Cooper Hurley was also a sponsor of A 1,000 Shoes for 1,000 Smiles and The Elizabeth River Project.
