Culver for A Cause Run is TOMORROW!
On April 14, CCHS Associated Student Body will be hosting the Culver for a Cause Charity Run for the City of Culver City on the CCHS campus. Proceeds will be directed towards the CCUSD Culver Closet, which helps provide clothing and toiletry items to CCUSD families in need. Some proceeds will also be donated to help Peruvian women gain an access to education because we believe that it is important for our community members, who are lucky enough to have easy access to education, to support those in developing areas who cannot afford to attend school.

The Run will begin and finish at the Culver City High School track, and will also run through CCMS and Farragut Elementary School. The event will begin at 9am on April 14.
There will be entertainment, food, T-shirts, and medals. For registration and more information please visit www.culverforacause.com
