The Firm’s Miles for Meso 5K event will be held in Alton, Illinois on Sat., Sept. 21, 2013. This year marks the fifth anniversary of the race, and approximately 1,000 people are expected to participate.

The first Miles for Meso race was held in 2009. Since then, this event has raised $100,000 for mesothelioma cancer research. The sponsors of the race play a huge role in the amount of funds raised.
