The New South Wales Bar is entering a team in the Sydney Morning Herald Half Marathon on Sunday, 21 May 2017 to raise money for the Katrina Dawson Foundation. The money raised will go to fund a Katrina Dawson award for a female reader in each Bar Practice Course, worth $12,000. The prize recipient will be chosen on the basis of excellent academic qualifications, demonstrated leadership in the community and a commitment to enrolling in a Bar Practice Course within 18 months of winning the award.
Members are invited and encouraged to participate in the 2017 event by running, donating or both. If you're ready to run, you can register for the NSW Bar team here. If you wish to donate, please visit the team's fundraising page on Everyday Hero.
