Bruin Run/Walk at UCLA is a non-profit, student-run organization that raises money for the Chase Child Life program at the Mattel’s Children Hospital UCLA. Every year we hold a 5K run/walk on the UCLA campus to raise awareness and funds for the Chase Child Life Services Program.
Chase Child Life progam was initially established in 1968 in recognition of the unique needs of pediatric patients, especially the critically and chronically ill. CCL provides state-of-the-art care for pediatric patients, supporting children’s development through play therapy and education, and helping patients cope with the hospital stays and numerous medical procedures. The Program also assists the entire family, helping children, adolescents, and their siblings acclimate to the healthcare environment. Today, CCL continues to be a model for other medical centers.
