Fitness and Fun: Aztlan 5K Benefits CDU Scholarships

CDU students, faculty and staff were a proud sponsor, participant and volunteer at the Aztlan 5K Classic Run/Walk held on Sunday, August 11, 2013 at East Los Angeles College.

The event provided an opportunity for the CDU Team to work on improving their own health while implementing the University’s mission of community engagement and introducing families in East Los Angeles to CDU.
Proceeds from the event benefited the Congressman Edward R. Roybal Endowed Scholarship Fund. The event created a bit of a campus buzz and friendly competition. We look forward to participating next year!
