John Harrity appears on WUSA 9 “Great Day Washington” for National Walking Day

On Wednesday, April 3, 2019, Harrity & Harrity’s Managing Partner, John Harrity, joined the American Heart Association (AHA) of the Greater Washington Region for an appearance on WUSA 9 to talk about the importance of heart healthy activity in celebration of National Walking Day.  As a survivor of a recent “widow maker” heart attack in 2016, John’s personal story helps underscore the importance of including heart healthy activity in our every day lives, which is why the AHA Greater Washington Region invited him to join them for the National Walking Day event at Springfield Town Center and share his story.

We chose to include the AHA in our Harrity4Charity philanthropic initiative because of the impact that heart disease has on families across the globe. The AHA is the oldest and largest organization dedicated to fighting heart disease in the United States. Since 1924, the AHA has worked to educate policy makers, health care professionals, and the public to one day put an end to heart disease.

This year, we are proud to participate as the Presenting Sponsor of Lawyers Have Heart, a 5K run, 10K race, and fun walk that benefits the AHA. Now in its 28th year, Lawyers Have Heart has raised over $13 million for AHA and each year is one of the largest 10K races in the Washington, D.C. area. We’ll be running at the Washington Harbour on Saturday, June 8th, alongside John Harrity and hope you can join us and/or make a donation so we can meet our $40,000 fundraising goal for 2019.

Harrity 4 Charity Supports the ZERO Prostate Cancer Summit

Harrity & Harrity Controller Sandra Maxey attended the ZERO Prostate Cancer Summit, which was held February 24-26. ZERO, an organization focused on securing federal funding for prostate cancer research, hosted the three-day event for attendees to meet with survivors, patients, caregivers and family members who are committed to fighting prostate cancer.

By advocating for federal funding, ZERO hopes to help the hundreds of men and families impacted by this disease. Now more than ever, it is critical to preserve and advance cancer research, patient care and access to affordable health care.

The stories from survivors at ZERO made an impact. “Hearing from people who have fought and won the battle against this disease inspires us to keep pushing forward by raising awareness, speaking out, and finding a cure,” said Ms. Maxey. “We need to keep pressure on Capitol Hill to provide the much-needed funding and policies that will eliminate prostate cancer.”

Harrity & Harrity, LLP Announces Charitable Giving Initiative Harrity 4 Charity

Harrity & Harrity, LLP, has announced the launch of their charitable giving initiative, Harrity 4 Charity.

Harrity 4 Charity is an initiative that launched in July 2017 that represents a partnership between Harrity & Harrity and the American Heart Association, INOVA Children’s Hospital, Zero: The End of Prostate Cancer, and UNICEF.  Harrity & Harrity has pledged to donate 5% of profits to the partner charities, and 100% of the firm’s employees have pledged to donate a portion of their paychecks, as well. “We’re fortunate to be in a position where we can give back in such an extraordinary way,” says John Harrity, Managing Partner. “We couldn’t be more proud of our team and their commitment to helping others.”

These organizations were chosen by John Harrity, Paul Harrity, Sandra Maxey, and the Diversity Committee because each one was near and dear to their hearts.  The partners of Harrity & Harrity will also give the firm’s clients the opportunity to designate which charity they would like their portion of the firm’s profits to be donated.

Paul Harrity says of the initiative, “We see this as a way for us to make a difference in the world, and we hope other firms will do the same.”

Harrity & Harrity’s commitment to the community is manifested in other ways, as well.  The firm frequently volunteers time and in kind goods to benefit a number of charitable organizations, including Fairfax CASA, Alex’s Lemonade Stand, Duke Cancer Institute, and JDRF.  In October 2017, they will host the Sixth Annual Harrity Race Against Heart Disease benefitting the American Heart Association.
