On Wednesday, April 17th Daggett Shuler attorney Julie Bell united groups of Winston-Salem runners to pay tribute to those who lost their lives and those who were victims of the Boston Marathon tragedy.
“The run was intended to both honor the victims and to display an act of unity and solidarity in the local running community,” said Bell. “We wanted to pay respect to those who ran the race, who responded to those who were injured, or who were in any way touched by the events that occurred in Boston.”
Bell’s running friends jumped at the opportunity to lace-up their sneakers for the memorial gathering. “I told them I was planning to run in honor of Boston on Wednesday [this was Tuesday] and that anyone was welcome. I was honored by how many people showed up with less than a 24 hours notice,” said Bell.
Managing partner and attorney David Daggett supported Bell’s ambitious efforts in a time where “community” matters most.
“We are appreciative that in the face of tragedy and adversity our law partner, Julie Bell, organized a meaningful event to honor and support all the folks who are hurting,” said Daggett. “As a firm, we are proud to encourage and support healthy fitness lifestyles in our community.”
