Cal U Run/Walk for Suicide Awareness

Members of the campus community are encouraged to get moving as they raise awareness about suicide by military veterans.

The Office of Veterans Affairs and the Cal U Veterans Club have organized a 2.2-mile run/walk to highlight this public health crisis, which claims the lives of 22 veterans each day. 

Runners and walkers will begin at 11:22 a.m. Sept. 22. They will follow a 2.2-mile route that begins on Third Street in front of Manderino Library and ends at the Convocation Center Courtyard, where water and refreshments will be available. 

In true military fashion, the event will be held rain or shine.

Who can participate?

This free event is open to the entire campus community, as well as the general public. In particular, student veterans, military members and their dependents are encouraged to attend. 

How does Cal U assist veterans?

The Office of Veterans Affairs at Cal U provides information and support for veterans, military members and their families. Learn more at www. calu.edu/veterans.
