Michigan lawyer running for a cause
Emily Thomas, a Reiter & Walsh attorney for over three years, is running to help the children. On Sunday, Oct. 18, 2015, she and countless other participants will run the Detroit Free Press Talmer Bank Marathon. While this is her first time running a marathon, she has plenty of experience and motivation behind her to help her reach the finish line.
In the past, she’s run several different races. Last year, she ran the Detroit Free Press Half-Marathon, and ran all the way to Canada. She also ran in the Turkey Trot and a 5K for the Oakland County Bar Association.
Now, she’s been training since May for a total of 18 weeks. Helping the children and getting away from her desk have both motivated her and kept her moving. With the Make-A-Wish Foundation as her cause, every dollar donated will go towards a child in need. It’s Make-A-Wish-Foundation’s goal to grant a wish to every child diagnosed with a life-threatening medical illness. With her help, some of those wishes can come true.
She originally set her fundraising goal to $100, but now plans to raise it. She’s already far surpassed her goal. Attorney Jesse Reiter and the staff at Reiter & Walsh, PC, all helped to contribute to her cause. Now, with a total of $225 raised, she says her only goal is to finish.
Every 37 minutes, a wish is granted to a child in need. Supporters, donors and marathon runners who advocate for children with disabilities make wishes come true. Donate to Emily’s fundraising page to help the children and keep her motivated.
