June 12, 2013 – On March 30th, 2013, Philadelphia mesothelioma attorney, Benjamin Shein of Shein Law participated in the Norm Kulig 2Young2Go Foundation’s annual Get the Lead Out 5K/10K and 1 Mile Walk. By bringing awareness to the dangers of asbestos and asbestos-related diseases, such as mesothelioma, the Norm Kulig Foundation honors those who have lost their lives to the deadly disease. Founded by the siblings of Norm Kulig who lost his battle against mesothelioma at the age of 42, the Foundation contributes to the furtherance of research for treatments and a cure and seeks to advance prevention of the disease through support of remediation efforts at known asbestos waste disposal sites.
This year’s 2Young2Go Run race started and finished at Wissahickon High School which provided a safe and fun venue for families and runners of all skill levels. The day’s festivities included activities both before the race and after, culminating in an Olympic style lap around the track. As in past races, in addition to Mr. Shein’s participation, Shein Law was a sponsor of the event. The attorneys and staff at Shein Law have a strong connection to the Philadelphia area and are dedicated to fighting for the rights of individuals and their families who have been affected by mesothelioma and asbestos exposure.
