Attorney Running 160 Miles to Raise Money for Legal Aid

November 16th, 2020 by Jake Stofan

Mike Freed, a business attorney with Gunster Shareholder, began a 160 mile journey from the Florida Supreme Court to the Duval County Court House Monday morning as part of an effort to raise money to pay legal bills for low income and vulnerable patients.

This is the fourth year Freed has made the run and by the time he completes this year’s six day journey he will have run the equivalent of 24 marathons.

In that time Freed has raise more than $1 million for the Jacksonville Area Legal Aid’s Northeast Florida Medial Legal Partnership.

He’s hoping to get to $2.25 million.

“People that are dealing with these challenges have a lot of problems as well. Physical, financial and others, so for me it’s just a manifestation of what they experience and the little bit of sacrifice that I do to run for six days straight is nothing compared to the challenges they have to suffer. So I’m happy to do my part and it gets peoples’ attention and instead of having people give a little bit, they give a lot,” said Freed.

All donations will be matched at 125 percent by Baptist Health up to $1.25 million.
