Harrity & Harrity is the Presenting Sponsor of the 2023 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 now open online through race weekend on May 20, 2023. We hope to see you at the finish line!
Since 1991, Lawyers Have Heart has raised over $17 million for The American Heart Association and each year is one of the largest 10K races in the Washington D.C. area. Like last year, the 2023 Lawyers Have Heart event will be both in-person and virtual, allowing people across the globe to come together in the fight against cardiovascular disease. As co-chairs of the event, Harrity’s John Harrity and American University’s David Jaffe have set a goal to raise $1.5 million to promote longer lives and have the most event participants ever, both of which can be achieved with your help.

WHY: Donations raised through Lawyers Have Heart goes to fund American Heart Association’s research, education, medical treatments, and prevention assistance to help eliminate the #1 killer in the world, heart disease.
“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 our in-person event will create a safe way for those hoping for team interaction to come together. On the weekend of May 20th, runners and walkers of all ages and abilities, from all across the globe, will unite in a fantastic community event, and we look forward to having the most participants yet.” – John Harrity, Event Co-Chair
