The ninth time’s the charm! The Tim Heinsz 5K Run/Walk and Jim Devine Dog Walk set records for both attendance and money raised on Saturday. Approximately 350 people of all ages and skill levels registered – some with their dogs – to participate in this year’s run/walk in memory of late former Dean Timothy J. Heinsz and late Associate Dean James R. Devine. The 9th annual event raised more than $40,000 to support the Timothy J. Heinsz Scholarship Fund at the School of Law, given annually to at least one second-year law student.

Third-year student Kate Gallen and a team of students from the law school’s Student Bar Association organized and carried out this year’s event. Alumnus Dan Lyskowski, ’11, won the race for the second year in a row. Kevin Looby and Meg Sterchi, both first years, won their respective student divisions.

This year’s Dean’s Cup, which recognizes the firm and its members who make the largest financial contribution to the fund, was presented to Dowd Bennett LLP in Clayton, Mo.

Three pet rescue organizations from the Mid-Missouri community were invited to participate. Columbia Second Chance, the Central Missouri Humane Society and ARFF provided adoptable dogs to be walked, played with and loved on.
