“Lace up. Get Motivated. Let Freedom Run!” That, from organizers of the Sept. 9 Freedom Run, which begins at 6:30 p.m. at City Hall Plaza. The Dallas Association of Young Lawyers organized the run as an opportunity to honor the heroes and victims of 9/11. Race profits benefit the Assist the Officer Foundation. Rally your coworkers for a corporate team and enjoy a VIP party Thursday Sept. 2 at 5:30 p.m. at the Dallas Chop House (free food, drinks and valet, oh my!)  There are no excuses not to register for this event, founder Clay Scheitzach says:

… lingering high school injury or a reality TV show you must see that night … even with your best excuse, I know you are not able to resist the temptation of hanging out with 3000 of your closest friends and drinking free beer at City Hall after crushing the competition in the 5k (or just drinking beer, listening to an awesome band and saying you ran). So either way, American, beer lover, fierce competitor, or whatever, now is the time to get your Corporate Team signed up for the 2010 Freedom Run.
