Description:
Idaho Legal Aid Services, Inc., DisAbility Rights Idaho and the Idaho Volunteer Lawyers Program are Idaho's main providers of free, civil legal services to low income and disabled Idahoans. Funding to these organizations has been cut while the need has continued to increase. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, nearly 16% of Idahoans live in poverty. A 2013 University of Idaho study indicated that over 775,000 Idahoans who face civil legal difficulties do not have the resources to seek the help of an attorney. This disparity of resources has since grown and these local legal service nonprofits work tirelessly to bridge the gap with no proportionate addition in funding.
Idaho Legal Aid Services, Inc., DisAbility Rights Idaho, and the Idaho Volunteer Lawyers Program serve Idahoans by providing much needed legal assistance in domestic violence matters, custody and divorce cases, guardianships for abused/neglected children, foreclosure prevention, protection of seniors who are victims of financial exploitation, and other critical legal needs. The Access to Justice FUND Run/Walk raises both funds and awareness for these organizations which are vital to sustaining Idaho's communities.
The Access to Justice FUND Run/Walk is a family and pet-friendly 5K event. Kids and adults alike will enjoy the scenic course that loops around Reserve Street and heads into Boise's beautiful foothills alongside Mountain Cove Road. The start and finish area is near the Fort Boise Park, so bring your four-legged friend along for the fun! Not sure the kiddos will make it through the full route? Pack up that stroller and make it a day for the whole family! Event participants receive a vibrant event t-shirt and to-die-for Blue Sky Bagels at the finish line!
