Regent Law Students on the Run

When Regent Law student Katey Price was 17, she was diagnosed with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis. With the support of her family and friends, Price persevered, even working as a volunteer with the Arthritis Foundation to encourage others who were working through the same condition.

Just this December, she chaired the Virginia Chapter of the Arthritis Foundation’s 2008 Jingle Bell Run/Walk for Arthritis in Norfolk, VA.
And she wasn’t alone.
Over 20 Regent Law students and faculty joined 1,000+ participants in this year’s event. Several Regent Law students and one faculty member even placed in their respective divisions. Finishers included law students Seth Doherty, Rob Rose, Anastasia Kranias, Katie McGee and law school Associate Dean Natt Gantt.

According to Price, eight months of planning as event chair paid off. “Our goal this year was to raise $60,000 for the foundation,” she said. “We smashed last year’s record by raising over $76,000.”
Price feels part of her calling as a future lawyer is to continue to serve her local community through organizations like the Arthritis Foundation.

"I think it all comes down to servant leadership,” she says. “We're called to serve the community like Christ served others. My calling translates into my passion for what I do in the Arthritis Foundation, and ultimately into how I’ll give back to the community as an attorney.”
