BALTIMORE—For more than 35 years, Paul’s Place has worked in Southwest Baltimore to help rebuild individuals, families and our communities.

Womble Bond Dickinson supported the Paul’s Place 2017 Huff & Puff 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk to raise money for programs that support more than 3,500 needy individuals and families annually. The firm was a Gold Sponsor of the race, and Baltimore team members Newt Fowler, his daughter Jennifer, Hillary Colonna, Candace Gill and Angela Long took part in the event.

The third annual Paul’s Place 2017 Huff & Puff 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run/Walk took place Nov. 11 at Carroll Park Golf Course.

The day before the race, Womble Bond Dickinson’s Baltimore office held a “carb load lunch” of pasta, garlic bread and tiramisu, which was attended by the majority of team members in the office. To prepare for the Hula Hoop challenge, one of the multiple events that followed the race, team members practiced their hula hoop moves. Afterwards, the hula hoops were donated to the race for use on race day for the actual challenge (as part of the firm’s sponsorship/contribution to the race).
