Displaying extraordinary community spirit and commitment to the fight against cancer, Provost Umphrey Law Firm staff members braved rainy weather conditions to take part in the "Gift of Life's" 2nd Annual Julie Richardson Procter 5K Ribbon Run/Walk, helping to raise critical awareness of breast, ovarian and other gynecological cancers.

Nearly 30 Provost employees "laced up to save lives" and joined nearly 2,000 Southeast Texans in the Run/Walk. Equipped with pom-poms, clappers and specially-made signs, an additional Provost volunteer team hosted a cheer station to show their support and shout encouragement to participants.

"The staff and attorneys of Provost Umphrey Law Firm are dedicated to serving the needs of Southeast Texans, and we are proud to support an organization like the 'Gift of Life' that is saving so many lives," said Debra Felps, of Provost Umphrey. "The Ribbon Run/Walk is a good cause, and it was gratifying to know we were able to make a positive difference with our cheer station. When the participants passed us, I loved seeing their big smiles and increased excitement when we clapped and cheered for them."
