As long-time residents of Asheville, Mosaic Community Lifestyle Realty agents and employees make it their mission to work with and support the outstanding area organizations that advocate for the vitality and health of our local and global community. In that spirit, Mosaic is sponsoring Pisgah Legal Service’s Run for Justice 5K – a virtual event for walkers and runners to support access to justice for all – and is inviting others in the community to join the team.
Securing justice for those in need
Pisgah Legal Services is an innovative nonprofit that seeks to pursue justice by providing legal assistance and advocacy to help low-income people in Western North Carolina meet their basic needs and improve their lives. Pisgah Legal provides a broad array of free, civil legal services to people who live in poverty in 11 WNC counties, and offers immigration law services in 18 counties. They help more than 20,000 of the most vulnerable people in area communities annually to meet urgent needs such as housing, safety from abuse, health care and income; coordinate the services of more than 300 pro bono attorneys in WNC; and improve systems and policies that impact the lives of thousands of low-income people.
Virtual 5k run steps up support

Participants pay $25 to register and can invite family and friends to donate a dollar amount for each kilometer they walk or run anytime between Saturday, May 29, and Saturday, June 12, on the route of their choosing.
