Harrity & Harrity is the Presenting Sponsor of the VIRTUAL 2021 Lawyers Have Heart, a 5K run, 10K race, and fun walk that benefits the American Heart Association. We'll be running this June, alongside our friend and Co-Founding Partner, John Harrity, who survived a widow maker heart attack in May 2016. Registration is available online through race weekend, June 11-13, 2021. We hope to see you at the finish line!
In support of the American Heart Association, we are giving away prizes to Lawyers Have Heart registrants every week from now until Race Weekend (June 11-13th), with a Grand Prize to be given away after the event!
Each week, participants will invite their friends, family, coworkers, etc. to register for this FREE virtual event and share it on social media! At the end of the week, participants will send an email to LHH@harrityllp.com with the names and email addresses of the individuals they got to register that week, as well as links (or screenshots) to their #RunLHH social media posts. Submissions will earn you points for that specific week, and the individual with the most points by the deadline will win that week’s prize! The Grand Prize will be based off of the total points you earned throughout the entire six-week duration.
Winnings will begin on Friday, 5/7.
Social Media Post = 1 point per post (up to 5 points per week)
Registration on Team Harrity = 10 points per individual registration (no cap)
Sign Up a New Team = 10 points per individual registration on that team (up to 50 points per new team)
Step 1: Register* for our team here and encourage everyone you know to register. You can also form your own team here. *Registration for the virtual event is FREE. No purchase, donation, or otherwise is necessary to participate.
Step 2: Email us at LHH@harrityllp.com with the names and emails of all of your registrants for the week by Friday at 12:00 PM ET. If you signed up a team outside of Team Harrity, please also include the Team Name with the names and emails of your registrants on their roster.
Names and emails will be kept confidential and will not be used for any purposes, except to contact the winner to receive the prize.
Step 3: Winners will be contacted directly via email by 1 PM ET each week and announced to Harrity social media pages (with their permission). The next week’s prize will also be announced at this time. Since Friday at 12 PM is the cut off for each week, it is also the start of the next week. So, if you sign someone up at 12:30 PM on a Friday, they will be part of the following Friday’s drawing.
If any week results in a tie for the most points, the individuals tied will have an extension of time to encourage additional registrations. The participants with the most additional registrations by the following Monday at 12:00 PM ET will win the prize.
Since 1991, Lawyers Have Heart has raised over $14 million for The American Heart Association and each year is one of the largest 10K races in the Washington D.C. area. This year, in light of COVID, the race will be held virtually, allowing people across the globe to come together in the fight against cardiovascular disease. As co-chairs of the event, Harrity’s Sandra Maxey and John Harrity have set a goal to have the most event participants ever, which can be achieved with your help.

“Lawyers Have Heart has always been about encouraging heart-healthy lifestyles and raising vital funds for education and research, a mission that has a new kind of importance during this pandemic. The virtual event is inspiring people who have been stuck at home and social distancing to get active in any way they feel comfortable, while creating a safe way to come together. On the weekend of June 12-14th, runners and walkers of all ages and abilities, from all across the globe, will ‘virtually’ unite in a fantastic community event, and we look forward to having the most participants yet.” – John Harrity, Event Co-Chair
