The Hampden County Bar Association's Race Judicata - A Run for the Bar

The 7th Annual Race Judicata - A Run for the Bar will be virtual on Saturday, September 26, 2020.

Register Today!

To ensure the safety of all participants, volunteers and spectators, and to adhere to the current safety guidelines, this year's event will be held VIRTUALLY.

What does that mean? A virtual race is a race that can be run or walked from any location you choose. You can run, jog, or walk on the road, a trail, on a treadmill, at the gym - anywhere! You get to run your own race, at your own pace, and time it yourself. We are excited to announce that in addition to the usual 5K run/walk, a 10K option will also be offered.

Registrants will receive instructions to email finishing times to racejudicataarunforthebar@gmail.com by 11:59 pm on Saturday, September 26, 2020, to be included in the race results. The results and winning times will be posted by noontime on Sunday, September 27, 2020, and the top finishers in both the 5K and 10K will receive medals. The cost for the 5K is $30 and the 10K is $40. All registrants will receive a participant shirt and a water bottle. Only those registered by September 13, 2020, will be guaranteed a shirt. Packets will be available for a quick pick-up on Friday, September 25, 2020, between 3:00-6:00 pm in Springfield, and on Saturday, September 26, 2020, between 8:00 - 11:00 am in at the Elks Lodge, 250 Whitney Avenue, Holyoke. Registrants will receive an email as the event approaches with more information.

Proceeds raised from the 10K will benefit the William J. Boyle Scholarship, and proceeds raised from the 5K will benefit the Colonel Archer B. Battista Veterans Scholarship, and the Children's Law Project. Sponsorship opportunities are available! 

While we are disappointed that we cannot gather at the Ashley Reservoir this year, we hope you will join us in keeping the spirit of Race Judicata - A Run for the Bar alive, especially this year, as we remember our beloved and missed friend, and avid-runner, Judge William J. Boyle. Participants will be encouraged to connect during the day by sharing photos, videos, memories of Judge Boyle, and of course, their finishing time! 

If you have any questions, please email or call (413) 732-4660. Thank you for your continued support and participation!

Thank you to our growing list of sponsors...

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

The Hampden County Bar Association is a volunteer, non-profit organization of lawyers representing the legal profession, serving lawyers, the justice system, and the public. The core values of the Hampden County Bar Association are professionalism, equal access to the legal system for all, and an unwavering commitment to the profession, to each other and the people we serve.

The proceeds raised from this event will benefit the William J. Boyle Scholarship, the Colonel Archer B. Battista Veterans Scholarship, and the Children's Law Project.

The William J. Boyle Scholarship was established in memory of our dear friend and colleague, the late Judge William J. Boyle. The scholarship will be awarded to a Putnam High School Senior or graduate who will be attending Springfield Technical Community College (STCC) in September.  The recipient will be an established Springfield resident and a well-rounded student involved in school activities and community service, as well as having a financial need.

The Colonel Archer B. Battista Veterans Scholarship was established in memory of our Past President, dear friend, and colleague, Archer B. Battista. Colonel Battista had a deep love and devotion to the men and women who served in our armed forces and after thirty-three years of commissioned service as active duty and as a member of the United States Reserve Air Force, he retired in 2001 as a command pilot in the grade of Colonel. Upon completion of his active duty service, Colonel Battista graduated from Western New England University School of Law and practiced law from 1977 until 2013. Colonel Battista was instrumental in establishing a Veterans Treatment Court to address the unique situation of military veterans involved in the criminal justice system. After Battista's passing in 2016, the Colonel Archer B. Battista Veteran's Scholarship was established to financially assist veterans and active members of the military attend law school. Through this scholarship, his family and the Hampden County Bar Association hope to continue Colonel Battista's dedication to help members of the armed services. 

The Children's Law Project program recognizes that children suffer emotionally, mentally and event financially when their parents engage in contested court proceedings. Through this program, attorneys are appointed to represent the children involved in contested custody and visitation matters pending in Hampden County Probate and Family Court. The child is the attorney's client and the attorney voices the child's position when parents or guardians cannot agree on what is best for the child.
