RUN 4 YOUR CAUSE – CSULB

Come join us and make a Difference!  Unite with family, friends, and your community to SUPPORT YOUR CAUSE.

Select your Cause when you Register and support your local Charity, Organization, or Cause.  You can even create a new Cause that others can support by registering your Cause online at www.compete4causes.org/new-organizations.

This is essentially a Fundraising tool for all these Causes as each Participant “Competes 4 Their Cause”.  It’s also a great way for Organizations to Fundraise and increase their Notoriety, “Fundraise 4 YOUR Cause“.

Even those that cannot participate in the Event can still Donate on behalf of a Cause by going to www.Compete4Causes.org/Donate and selecting their Cause.

We also set up a Facebook Event Page that lists more details and will be updated regularly with Announcements, Special Performances, Event Details, etc…

The Wellness Expo will feature a Fun-Filled Day of Live Entertainment, Rock-Climbing Wall, Games, Activities, Jump Houses, Obstacle Courses, Vendors, Wellness Professionals, etc…

Thanks again and we look forward to seeing you at this Event and all our upcoming event(s)!!!
