SA Law completes the Junior Lawyer Divisions' 30 day team challenge to walk or run 1000 miles to raise funds for Refuge.
The challenge commenced on 2 January and our team of 20 SA Law volunteers avidly recorded their miles using their daily lockdown exercise to tally up the mileage until the challenge came to a close on 31 January 2021.
Two teams of ten diligently walked and ran come rain, shine and even snow to each complete the challenge and we're delighted to have exceeded the target of 500 miles per team - in total we completed 1,163.19 miles!
"The JLD Challenge is a wonderful opportunity for us to get involved in to raise money for a brilliant cause." - Lizzy Trueman, SA Law Team Challenge Captain, JLD National Representative for Hertfordshire and Hertfordshire Law Society Junior Lawyer Division Representative
