Cal To Host 3rd Annual Race For Change On Oct. 30

Oct 14, 2022

The Cal women's basketball team is participating in the third annual Race for Change
The 5K walk/run will take place on Sunday, October 30 at Lake Merritt. Created by the UC San Diego basketball programs as a way to address racial equality across the country, each program that joins chooses its own initiative centered around racial equality to fundraise for. Last year, the Bears raised over $6,000 for Cal Athletics' Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, Belonging, and Justice Office. This year our goal is to raise $10,000 for the DEIBJ office. The department, led by Dr. Ty-Ron Douglas is responsible for the development, implementing, and administering diversity, equal employment opportunity, and affirmative action efforts in order to comply with government legislation and management directives and support equity and inclusion programs.
