Church Wyble, P.C. of Lansing was recently one of three Gold Level sponsors for the 2nd annual Paper Chase 5K Run/Walk event held on May 31st.
The event , which took place on a cold and windy day, didn’t dampen the spirits of the 63 competitors.
The event was hosted by the Young Lawyers Sections (YLS) and the Ingham County Bar Association (ICBA). YLS is a dues-free section of the ICBA that provides networking and education events and resources for young attorneys in Ingham County at low or no cost. ICBA is for new lawyers, under the age of 36 or have been practicing for 5 years or less.

A portion of the proceeds from the event will also benefit the Legal Services of South Central Michigan, which provides free legal advice and representation of approximately 10,000 senior citizens and low-income members of our community each year.
Two associate attorneys from Church Wyble, P.C., Kate Mortensen and Nolan Erickson, played a large roles in the event. Kate Mortensen was integral to the organization and planning of the event as she served as the volunteer coordinator and one of the coordinators on the planning committee. Her main responsibility was to recruit and organize all volunteers on the day of the race.
In addition, Nolan Erickson, an associate attorney for Church Wyble, participated in the event and finished in 4th place overall. During his time at Church Wyble Nolan has participated in may 5K events that support the community, such as the Twilight 5K in Lansing (supporting Youth Running Clubs and healthy activities) and the GoRuck Light in Detroit.
