PHILADELPHIA – Stradley Ronon Partner John Murphy participated on April 29 and 30 in the tenth annual Face of America Ride, a non-competitive bicycle ride that benefits wounded and disabled soldiers. More than 180 disabled veterans were part of the nearly 600 riders who cycled 110 miles from the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, to the Civil War battlefields of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. This year’s race raised more than $565,000. Stradley Ronon attorneys and staff made financial contributions in support of the ride.

Murphy is an avid cyclist who also participates in the American Diabetes Association’s annual Tour de Cure and other charity rides for the American Cancer Society,  the MS Society and the Greater Yellowstone Coalition. Stradley Ronon is a corporate sponsor for this years’ Tour de Cure on June 3, 2017 in Ambler, Pennsylvania. Mr. Murphy is a litigation partner in Stradley Ronon’s Philadelphia office.
