Join us for a morning run or walk around the UC Davis Arboretum (3.5 miles) followed by breakfast in the park. Participation fee for Academic Researchers and Postdocs is $20 which includes the fruit and bagel breakfast. Family members can join for $5 and there are many bridges for short cuts if you wish.

This event will raise money for our Voluntary Community Action Program (for more info about VCAP, see http://uaw5810.org/take-action/v-cap-faq/), which helps support pro-science, pro-labor, pro-immigrant candidates in 2020.

Join us even if you don’t want to run! Breakfast will be good, and we’ll have family-friendly fun available. Donations will support efforts to build the conditions that lead to better working conditions and funding for science.
