Zwillinger Tahoe ride 2013

L to R: Zwillinger Greek & Knecht PC attorneys Andrew Breavington, Felecia Rotellini and Jamie Burgess after finishing their 100-mile ride on Sunday, June 2, 2013.

Last week, I wrote about a great team of lawyers and supporters who planned to pedal furiously in a 100-mile challenge. The beneficiary of their sweat and fundraising efforts was the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

Today, I’m pleased to report that I received news about how the event went in the mountains around Lake Tahoe.

Here is what I heard about the remarkable ZBK Riders team (for Zwillinger Greek & Knecht PC), led by attorney Jamie Burgess.

  • On Sunday, June 2, everyone on the ZGK Riders team completed the 100-mile ride safely.
  • The eight other members of the team have (so far) collectively raised $40,107 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society; Jamie Burgess raised another $47,295.
  • The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society honored Jamie Burgess at the ride as the third-highest fundraising cyclist in the United States this year.
  • So among all the team’s riders, they raised $87,402.

The team thanks the many members of the State Bar of Arizona who contributed generously to help fund LLS efforts to develop cures for blood cancers.

Congratulations to everyone involved!
