At the end of a long week marked by the final capture of the second suspect of the mysterious marathon bombings in Boston, we send our deepest condolences to runners, spectators, and rescuers who unfortunately fell into harm’s way at the time of the explosions. On Tuesday, April 23rd in Bruin Plaza, UCLA and our surrounding community will come together to show our support for our friends in Boston who have been affected by the tragic events.
The event, hosted by the Undergraduate Students Association Council (USAC), is titled “Bruins For Boston”. We will be holding a letter writing for victims and their families at 11am, a symbolic marathon starting in the plaza at 12pm, and a blood drive from 11am to 1pm. We are deeply moved by the runners in the marathon who ran straight to the hospital to donate blood for victims that were harmed by the bombings, and will be hosting our own blood drive in symbolic fashion and in support.
