UCLA Bruin Run/Walk

(6)

Bruin Run/Walk is one of twelve committees within UCLA's Student Wellness Commission. We are responsible for putting on one of the biggest student-run events on campus every year: a 5K in the spring that benefits the Chase Child Life Program at the Mattel Children’s Hospital at UCLA. It brings together students, UCLA faculty, and members of the greater LA community for a wonderful cause. The Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA Chase Child Life Program was established in 1968 in recognition of the unique needs of its pediatric patients, whom were critically and chronically ill. This program was one of the first in the nation, and has served as a model for other medical centers to follow. A commitment to the continuity of the care of its patients and a highly developed volunteer program are two facets that distinguish the program from others. The Chase Child Life Program supports the entire families of its patients by helping children, adolescents, and their siblings acclimate to the healthcare environment. Child Life Specialists support the development of these patients by using play time and education to help them cope through life's stressful events. The Annual Bruin Run/Walk 5K has been a tradition on the UCLA campus for over 20 years. Last year, we had around 850 participants for our event and were able to raise over $30,000 for the Chase Child Life Program. Our committee of 30 UCLA undergraduate students work closely together with the Mattel Children’s Hospital in order to make this event possible.

To all of our friends, supporters, and community:

SWC Bruin Run/Walk’s mission is to support programs that further enhance the well-being and health of children in the greater Los Angeles area. Over the last 20 years, we’ve been responsible for organizing and hosting one of the largest student-run events at UCLA: a 5K during the spring that supports the Chase Child Life Program at the UCLA Mattel Children’s Hospital. Funds raised from our event are directly donated to the program to support Chase Child Life specialists who play an essential role in helping pediatric patients and their families better acclimate to the hospital environment.

It is with our deepest sadness and regret that we announce the cancellation of the 21st Annual Bruin Run/Walk, originally scheduled on Sunday, April 26, 2020. As one of the twelve committees in the Student Wellness Commission, our highest priority is that everyone remains safe and healthy during these troubling times. Therefore, we want to ensure the health and well-being of the community by preventing the further spread of COVID-19.

We will be offering refunds for our 5K event, but please know that this is a fundraiser for the Chase Child Life Program. It would be greatly appreciated if you considered your registration fee as a donation. If you would still like to receive a refund, please indicate this on RunSignUp, process a chargeback with your credit card company, and we’ll accept the chargeback. The deadline to request a refund is April 26, 2020.
