Access to Justice FUND Run/Walk

4th Annual Access to Justice FUND Run/Walk - Huge Success!

The 4th Annual Access to Justice FUND Run/Walk on Saturday, June 3 was a huge success. The family friendly 5K, held at Fort Boise Park, drew more than 200 participants and raised over $8,200 for the Access to Justice Idaho Campaign. The campaign’s fundraising mission is to support the three main providers of free, civil legal services in Idaho – Idaho Legal Aid Services, Inc., the Idaho Volunteer Lawyers Program and DisAbility Rights Idaho. Runners, walkers, and pups alike had a great time on the sunny Saturday morning, all while supporting a great cause.

While funding for these local legal service nonprofits has decreased in recent years, the need for these critical legal services is ever growing.

The Access to Justice FUND Run/Walk was created in 2014 as a Legacy Project stemming from the Idaho Academy of Leadership for Lawyers. Since its inaugural year, this event has raised over $22,500 for the Access to Justice Idaho campaign – funds that have continued to provide a legal safety net for Idaho’s low-income population.
