UCLA Bruin Run/Walk is back with the 19th annual 5K benefiting the Chase Child Life Program at the Mattel Children’s Hospital at UCLA. Support us in this cause, “Run with Purpose, Join the Run/Walk Circus”.

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 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, who 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 pediatric patients by helping the children, adolescents, and their siblings acclimate to the healthcare environment. Child Life Specialists work with these long term and chronically ill 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 18 years. Last year, we had gathered more than 1000 run/walk participants and were able to raise over $75,000 for the Chase Child Life Program. Thirty-two passionate UCLA undergraduate students make this event possible in close coordination with the Mattel Children’s Hospital.

Visit bruinrunwalk.com for more details on registration. Early bird registration fees are $25 and will go up to $30 on April, 14, 2018! UCLA students are eligible for a $5 discount off registration. All proceeds from the race will go directly towards the Chase Child Life Program.

This is great way to fulfill most of our healthy new year’s resolution but more importantly make a positive impact on the children. Sign up today!
