The Cooley Law School Tampa Bay campus Cool Runnings Team took third place at the 2013 Hillsborough County Bar Association (HCBA) Judicial Pig Roast & 5K Race for Pro Bono River Run.
This family-friendly event on March 23 supports pro bono legal services in Hillsborough County.
The Florida campus of Cooley Law has participated twice as sponsor, but this is the first year it entered a team and it was the largest in the race.
The HCBA reported it had the most runners register in the five years the event has taken place. An estimated 450 people attended the pig roast and family picnic.
Dionnie Wynter, Cooley’s Tampa Bay campus director, said the race committee raised $250 for Bay Area Legal Services through the silent auction of MacDonald Training Center artwork. The race also raised a record-breaking 899 pro-bono volunteer hours pledged for the upcoming year.
Cooley student Sadique Waseem placed second in his age group, while classmate Sean Coveleski placed third in his.
Team members included Waseem and Coveleski, Chelsea Armer, Celine Delice, Marla Garland, Sonya Greenidge, Feleshia Henderson, Jason Imler, Andrea Kurjah, Mao Lee, Necia Mohammed, Henry Ortiz, Anthony Preston, Katherine Salinas, Monica Sanchez, Brett Schultz, Samantha Sobel, Shunta Tidwell and Carla Waters, plus Dionnie Wynter and her son, Demani Hemley.
