PHILADELPHIA – Stradley Ronon attorneys and staff volunteered in the Police Athletic League of Philadelphia’s 24 Math Challenge, an annual contest where school-age children (grades 5-8) solve math problems in a fun and challenging competition. Firm lawyers and staff members served as proctors for the event, which Stradley Ronon has sponsored for the past 13 years. The 24 Math Challenge asks teams from all Philadelphia PAL centers to add, subtract, multiply and divide their way to the number 24 in the shortest time.

The partnership between Stradley Ronon and PAL was recognized in 2015 as one of the Philadelphia region’s top “hands-on initiatives” at the Philadelphia Business Journal’s Corporate Giving Awards.
