A 5K Benefiting the Health and Well-Being of Children in the Greater LA Area
Save the Date for the 23rd Annual Bruin Run/Walk on
UCLA Bruin Run/Walk is back with the 23rd annual 5K benefiting The Painted Turtle. Bruin Run/Walk is one of twelve committees within UCLA’s USAC Student Wellness Commission (SWC). We are responsible for organizing one of the biggest student-run events on campus every year: a 5K in the spring that benefits The Painted Turtle. The Painted Turtle is a camp in Lake Hughes, California for kids with chronic illnesses and their families. Our 5k brings together students, UCLA faculty, and members of the greater LA community for a wonderful cause. The Annual Bruin Run/Walk 5K has been a tradition on the UCLA campus for almost 20 years. In past years, we had gathered around 1000 run/walk participants per year and have been able to raise over $75,000 in a given year for the our beneficiary! Twenty passionate UCLA undergraduate students make this event possible in close coordination with The Painted Turtle.
