Maverick’s 5k Run

Posted by    |    October 31st, 2014 at 11:33 am


Last week, King Grossman and Matt Miller, of Jim Lake Companies, participated in “Mavs Run This Town”, a 5k run put on by the Dallas Mavericks.

The event benefited the Dallas Mavericks Foundation, which aims to assist young people through emphasizing education, good health, and skills necessary to lead successful lives.

The course started and ended on Olive Street, between the W Hotel and AT&T Plaza, and wound through the Design District.  A post-run party was held, featuring live music from the Old 97′s.   The event was a huge success!

Both men did outstanding:

Matt Miller                                                                             King Grossman

Finished in 27:59                                                                         Finished 31:52

357th out of 1,825 runners overall                                           539th out of 1,825 runners overall

281st out of 813 males                                                                390 out of 813 males
