The 10th Annual Tim Heinsz 5K/10K and Jim Devine Dog Walk set records for both attendance and money raised.
Nearly 400 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. Participants included Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon and his family, as well as Judge Patricia Breckenridge, Judge Zel Fischer and Chief Justice Mary Rhodes Russell from the Supreme Court of Missouri.
Led by 3Ls Liz Judy and Davi Moeller and a team of student volunteers, the run/walk raised more than $52,000 to support the Timothy J. Heinsz Scholarship Fund at the School of Law. This is about $10,000 more than was raised at last year’s event. The scholarship in Heinsz’s name is given annually to at least one second-year law student.
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., for the fifth year in a row.
For the first time, the run/walk was held in conjunction with Law Day, the law school’s oldest alumni tradition, so race participants could enjoy a delicious lunch with alumni and friends on Carnahan Quadrangle after completing the course.
