This 5K run/walk, which will take place on April 23rd on the UC Berkeley campus will be organized by the Cal Undergraduate Public Health Coalition (Cal UPHC) in collaboration with the student organization, UNICEF at Cal. Cal UPHC is planning to raise money and awareness for the public charity Project Peanut Butter (www.projectpeanutbutter.org). This humanitarian project is focused in Malawi, a country in Southeast Africa, and has had a major impact on infant mortality rates. UNICEF at Cal will be donating their portion of the proceeds towards disaster relief in Japan through the national headquarters of the United Nations Children's Fund which works in over 158 countries to provide victims of civil conflict, poverty, and natural disasters with aid and supplies.
There will be entertainment at the end of the race. We will also have prizes and t-shirts for the top finishers and many of the participants.
We look forward to raising money for these great causes and we hope that you can help us in reaching our goals!
