On a balmy September evening, 15 or so CALL members took to the lakefront to participate in 2017’s Race Judicata. CALL participated as a group of over 250 teams and 5,400 runners in total to benefit Chicago Volunteer Legal Services.
Julie Swanson coordinated the team’s efforts, which saw us raise $561 for CVLS. Christopher Willis, president Clare Willis’s husband, ably represented us in the competitive portion of the 5K. Scott Vanderlin designed our shirt for the race, which you can see above. And the runners couldn’t have done their thing without the watchful eyes of Diana Koppang, Carrie Port, and others who watched over personal items that would have certainly slowed down the trot along the trail.
After the race, we enjoyed some live music, snacks, libations, and conversation. It’s a good time even if you’re not a runner and just want a chance to enjoy the waning days of summer, so come on out and join us next year!
