Conway Attorney Sponsors 5K Race to Benefit Local Charity
Conway, SC- Personal Injury Attorney, Dirk Derrick, of The Derrick Law Firm will be sponsoring the first annual Run for the Children 5K race on January 5, 2013 in historic downtown Conway. The registration fee of $25 will be given to the Children’s Mentoring Program of Horry County.
"Giving back to the community where I was raised is really important to my family. I’ve seen the good the mentoring program has done over the last 20 years, and I’m happy to sponsor this race to increase awareness for it," says Dirk.
Mr. Derrick and his family have a reputation of getting involved in the local community and giving back in ways that see results. Dirk has been a Conway Middle School football coach for nine years and most recently sponsored the Derrick Law Firm Kickoff Classic that helped Myrtle Beach and Conway High School’s booster clubs. He is also on the Board of Directors for the Children’s Mentoring Program.
Because Mr. Derrick’s parents founded the program many years ago, this is a meaningful cause for him. "This race is meant to get the community involved in raising awareness for the mentoring program. We seem to be getting a lot of positive support and I hope it shows on race day."
The race will have volunteers from the community including members of the Derrick Law Firm, the Children’s Mentoring Program , and friends and family. Mr. Derrick will be sponsoring t-shirts for all participants.
