We will be joining forces as CLAA to register for the CAA Berkelium 5K Virtual Run/Walk. If you have not already done so, please register and ensure to select Chicanx Latinx Alumni Association as your team. This is a free event unless you want to make a donation or get swag. You can run/walk any day leading up to the 10/16, but we encourage to join us on October 10 so that we can paint social media and the result uploads with Latinx names and faces. Invite the whole family and all of your colleagues to join in this fun event. We are excited to rally behind this different type of alumni engagement opportunity, juntos!
