Harrity & Harrity is the Presenting Sponsor of the 2024 Lawyers Have Heart, a 5K run, 10K race, and fun walk that benefits the American Heart Association. We'll be running alongside our friend and Co-Founding Partner, John Harrity, who survived a widow maker heart attack in May 2016. We hope to see you at the finish line!


Celebrate the American Heart Association’s 100th Anniversary with us!

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.  The 2024 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.  To participate in this free virtual event, attend in person, or to contribute to this deserving organization, please use the links below to register, start a team, and donate today.


We are excited to celebrate the Centennial of the American Heart Association with the 34th Lawyers Have Heart 10K Race, 5K Run and Fun Walk with you! We have adopted strategies that allow participants to fully experience the 10K Race, 5K Run & Walk VIRTUALLY from anywhere in the world.

This global event will include a virtual leaderboard, suggested routes to run your own 10K or 5K, training tips, more opportunities for you to engage with our mission digitally, and healthy living resources to look after yourself and your loved ones while social distancing for those not attending the in-person event at West Potomac Park, Washington, DC.

“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 LHH 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
