The Hampden County Bar Association's Race Judicata - A Run for the Bar
The 5th Annual 5K Run/Walk will be held on Sunday, September 30, 2018, at the Ashley Reservoir in Holyoke, MA.
Race Judicata - A Run for the Bar will begin and end at the Holyoke Elks Lodge, 250 Whitney Avenue, Holyoke, MA. The race will take place at the Ashley Reservoir which is a quiet, scenic place to run. It is a great trail for beginners because it is not hilly, and it is also a great trail for advanced runners to build speed. Gravel paths make it excellent for running, walking or using a jogging stroller. Unfortunately, dogs are not allowed at the reservoir. The event will take place rain or shine!

Race day registration and packet pick-up will be available on Sunday, September 30, 2018, at 9:00 am and the 5K will begin at 11:00 am. 

Registration is now open!

Attorneys Charles R. & Carol K. Casartello
 






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 again benefit the Children's Law Project and the Colonel Archer B. Battista Veterans Scholarship.

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. 
The Colonel Archer B. Battista Veterans Scholarship was established in 2017 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 Colonel Battista, his family and the Hampden County Bar Association hope to continue Colonel Battista's dedication to help members of the armed services.
