Child brain injury lawyer Doug Landau volunteers at the races
This Fall Doug Landau served as a race volunteer at several area running at multi-sport events. Helping out at the Reston Triathlon, the Brain Injury Association 10 km and the Williamsburg 5 km, the Ashburn area injury lawyer enjoyed seeing familiar faces and encouraging athletes to to participate for a good cause. Having been the race director for the “F.A.B. 5” race that raised money for the Foundation of the Alexandria Bar Association in Old Town, Landau recognizes the time, effort and sweat that goes into a successful athletic fund raiser. “If you have never been a volunteer, you should just do it,” says Landau, paraphrasing the NIKE slogan. “Volunteering, seeing things from the race crew perspective, enables you to appreciate what the volunteers do for you,” the Loudoun injury lawyer adds. “There are lots of opportunities in the Leesburg, Fairfax and Manassas areas; you can find a race almost every weekend of the year, just go to our “RACES” section adds Landau, who competed in over a dozen multisport events and two dozen running races so far in 2009.
