Wednesday April 4th SGA Meeting
Whitney Fountas and Bernard Steinman are sponsoring a summer running club where members of SGA can complete an exercise regiment equivalent to the 469 mile stretch along PCH from USC to San Francisco. If enough people are involved this program may also be carried over into the fall semester. Anyone can participate in this SGA sponsored event: faculty, alumni, current students, administrators, etc. When you log your running/biking, and swimming miles, email Whitney Fountas once a week (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The program, “PAWS/LA: Keeping People and Pets Together” was introduced by PhD student Jessica Lendon. “PAWS/LA” provides services to assist low-income seniors and people disabled by a life-threatening illness keep and care for their pets. PAWS/LA was founded in 1989 in response to the companion animal-related crises faced by residents of Los Angeles County who were financially and physically debilitated by HIV/AIDS. Since that time, the agency has expanded its scope to assist low-income seniors and any low-income individual living with a chronic or life-threatening illness. PAWS/LA currently serves more than 1,700 disenfranchised animal guardians and their 2,000+ companion animals.
Contact Jessica Lendon or visit the “PAWS/LA” website to find out more information concerning volunteering opportunities. The main office is located on Hope and 12th in Downtown LA.
Dr. Enguidanosis the faculty sponsor for the American Diabetes Association “Tour de Cure” cycling event. To donate to the cause or participate in the event, contact Alexis Coulourides.
