On May 17, 2018, a team of attorneys from Girvin & Ferlazzo participated in the CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge in Albany.
About the CDPHP Race
The challenge consists of a 3.5-mile race through Empire State Plaza in Albany. Thousands of participants compete each year, walking and running with their co-workers throughout the center of the Capital Region.
As part of its pro bono work in the Albany community, Girvin & Ferlazzo has taken part in the CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge for the last several years. Not only is the challenge a good excuse to get out of the office, but it also serves as a fundraiser for the Hudson-Mohawk Road Runners Club.
With money raised from this local Albany fundraiser, the Hudson-Mohawk Road Runners Club can offer college scholarships, stipends, hold free races, and sponsor the Just Run Program. According to their website, the club is Albany’s largest running organization.
Additionally, CDPHP and the Hudson-Mohawk Road Runners Club select a community-based charity of choice as the recipient of participant contributions.
Girvin & Ferlazzo Participation
Spearheaded by Adrien Labelle, the Girvin & Ferlazzo team had ten participants. Alison Miller, one of our legal assistants, designed the Girvin & Ferlazzo t-shirt made specially for the event. The tagline, “putting our best foot forward since 1991” characterizes both our participation and our commitment to the Albany community.
Part of “putting our best foot forward” means being involved in the community. After all, it’s hard to be a local law firm in Albany without participating in Capital Region events. In addition to the CDPHP Workforce Team Challenge, our attorneys also give legal presentations, moderate discussions, serve as panelists, and donate to organizations like the Salvation Army.
