Fish attorneys and staff participate in cancer prevention fundraiser

A team of attorneys and employees from Fish & Richardson’s Silicon Valley office recently raised more than $123,000 for the LIVESTRONG Lance Armstrong Foundation at a fundraising ride/walk in San Jose, CA.

The “Fish Outta Water” team was given an award by Lance Armstrong for raising the most funds. Mark Kirkland, a principal in the Silicon Valley office, personally raised $58,000 and was captain of the 42 employees, friends, clients, and family members on the team. The event, LIVESTRONG Challenge San Jose, raised over $1.5 million dollars in its inaugural year in San Jose.

Armstrong, a cancer survivor and champion cyclist, started the Foundation in 1997 to unite people to fight cancer believing that unity is strength, knowledge is power and attitude is everything.
