Lake Highlands lawyer and Ironman triathlete Clay Scheitzach along with the Dallas Association of Young Lawyers heads up the annual Freedom Run 5k, which honors the heroes and survivors of the 9/11 attacks as well as those who risk their lives every day as firefighters, police officers and other first responders.

You can register for the race — which happens outside Dallas City Hall at 6:50 p.m. Thursday — at 5 p.m. race day (or pre-register at Luke’s Locker until 7 p.m. today).

The event promises an evening of family entertainment — “S.W.A.T. vehicles, police horses, fire trucks, police officers on hand distributing identification kits for children, etc.”
