Race for Justice 5K in Whitefield a Success

2017 Race for Justice – A Benefit for the DOVE Project

The morning broke grey and rainy as volunteers began to arrive at White Mountains Regional High School in Whitefield, New Hampshire, on Saturday, June 24, for the first annual Race for Justice. By 9 a.m., runners and walkers began to arrive, taking shelter under the awning of the school in an attempt to stay dry.

At 10 a.m., 46 intrepid athletes, ranging in age from 9 to ...well, quite a bit older, were assembled and awaiting instructions. The race kicked off with a few words from NH Bar President Scott Harris, followed by words of appreciation for all who turned out from NHBA Legal Services Director Ginny Martin and Dove Coordinator Pam Dodge, who spoke of the need for domestic violence intervention and the important role that the DOVE Project serves in the community.

By 10:15, blue sky was poking through the clouds and the rain had stopped. After instructions for the runners about the challenging 3.1-mile trail they would face, which now included water hazards, NHBA Board Secretary Rob Howard queued the runners and shot the pistol signaling the start of the race.

Top finishers overall included Kristine Kenison of Wolfeboro, Karen Kidder-Prehemo, and Karen Horsch for the women. Top male finishers were Nathan Kenison-Marvin, Jonathan Eck and Dick Samuels. Owen Dutton, who was celebrating his 9th birthday that day, came in first in the 19 and under category, followed by 12-year-old Jordan Meier and 10-year-old James Menezes.

Thank you to all who participated in the first annual Race for Justice and helped bring awareness to the Dove Project. Thank you, too, to Cecie Hartigan and Robert Berry for their donations, and to event sponsors McLane Middleton, Nixon Peabody, the UNH Law Daniel Webster Scholar Honors Program, Upton Hatfield, Employment Practices Group, and Waystack Frizzell.

Runners take off from the starting line at White Mountains Regional High School in Whitefield, NH, for the first-ever Race for Justice 5K, a benefit for the NHBA’s DOVE Project organized in connection with the NHBA Annual Meeting on June 24.
