Ambulance Chasing: It's Not Just for Lawyers Anymore

Once it was a competitive sport practiced only by lawyers, but now everyone can chase after ambulances. The Fair Oaks Volunteer Fire and Rescue Company in northern Virginia raises money by challenging people to pursue one of its ambulances:

The run was launched by local attorney Hana Brilliant three years ago when she was president of the company, and helps purchase actual fire trucks and ambulances for the station.

“I got tired of all the ambulance chasing jokes around the firehouse,” Brilliant said, “so I decided to use it to the Fire Department’s benefit.”

It’s properly timed and organized, and last year nearly 200 runners raised $7,000.

The University of Alabama Law School has done this for many years. During their Law Week in the spring, they have a 5k Race to the Courthouse, where the runners chase an ambulance from the law school to the Federal Courthouse downtown. Hilarious tradition.
