Since its inception, Lawyers Have Heart has raised more than $7.5 million to benefit AHA to further its mission of building healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. Lawyers Have Heart is now one of the largest annual philanthropic endeavors supported by area law firms and legal vendors and has grown to become Washington's largest 10K race.

In 1994, First National Bank of Maryland recognized Rick Frank with the "Exceeding the Expected" award, given to one volunteer each year in the legal community who best exhibits “the willingness to give something back, to do more, to go beyond the expected.”
