About Liz
Elizabeth Kasulis Padilla, a graduate of Cornell Law School, joined the Brooklyn Bar Association Volunteer Lawyers Project (VLP) as a Pro Bono Coordinator/Staff Attorney in December 2004 with the goal of helping those less fortunate than herself. Liz approached each day with excitement, eagerly seeking opportunities to give back to her community, especially to those most in need of a helping hand.

In the early summer of 2005 Liz, a competitive runner, was planning a 5K Race to benefit the VLP as a unique way of joining two of her favorite activities. On Thursday, June 9th, 2005, Liz was tragically killed in a road accident when she was biking to work. Her absence continues to weigh heavily on those who knew and loved her, yet she continues to inspire us. This race is dedicated to honoring her legacy of kindness and generosity.

How Your Support Helps
Proceeds raised at this event will fund the VLP’s critical legal programs and the 2017 Liz Padilla Cornell Law School Fellowship. The VLP is an organization dedicated to providing civil legal assistance to those Brooklyn residents who need it most. The mission of the VLP is to ensure that the legal system is accessible to those who, because of special needs or the overwhelming burdens of poverty, would not otherwise have their rights protected or their voices heard.
