Carlos Arias participates in the 2021 Cesar Chavez Virtual Activity Challenge

For the second year in a row, the UCOP Latino Staff Association (LaSA) is hosting a Cesar Chavez Commemorative Virtual Activity Challenge, taking place from Feb. 7 – March 31, 2022. This event remembers and honors Cesar Chavez leading farmworkers on a peaceful 300-mile march from Delano to Sacramento to raise awareness of the farmworkers’ plight. All participants are asked to make a donation, which will support the LaSA scholarship fund benefitting UC Latinx students.

New participants are still welcome: Register online here.

Step 1: Choose how to participate

    • 300-mile challenge – Run, walk, hike or bike
    • 3-mile run/walk/hike/bike
    • 30 activity challenge — Make an effort to get some movement every day, such as gardening, standing or sitting yoga or exercise, playing with children or pets, washing your car or cleaning, etc. (This option is great for those who are unable to walk, run or bike!)
