Don’t miss the 18th Annual Bruin Run/Walk, a 5K benefiting the Chase Child Life Program at the Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA! Registration starts at 6:30 am; the race starts at 8:30 am.

The Chase Child Life Program at the Mattel Children’s Hospital UCLA individualizes care plans to meet the developmental, social, and emotional needs of children while they are in the hospital. Whether a child comes through the Emergency Department, Perioperative suite, outpatient clinic, or spends nearly a year in the inpatient unit before going home, the Child Life department is there to identify potential sources of stress and provide supportive coping strategies to ease the child’s anxiety and cope with his/her illness or hospitalization. The Child Life Specialists are an essential part of the healthcare team to ensure that the developmental needs of every child are met.

This work cannot continue without the support of community partners. The annual Bruin Run Walk event is the organization’s largest fundraising event of the year and provides essential funding to the department. Please show your support for the 2017 Sponsor A Child families by participating!
