Running is a big part of the team philosophy at the Lehmbecker Law Firm, especially because the firm’s founder, Larry Lehmbecker, is a three-time Ironman Triathlon finisher. For Lehmbecker, the lesson involved with running and fitness is simple and involves those who step forward and continue to push themselves being successful in a race and life itself.
The life lessons and the physical/mental benefits are just part of the reason why the Lehmbecker Law Firm has been encouraging high school runners through its Sprinting Towards Success Scholarship, which is a $1,000 college scholarship that is awarded to a graduating high school senior who has a bonafide passion for running.
