About the Program

Battling Bruins is a program honoring people who are facing or survived hardships, such as injuries, illnesses, disabilities, military service, etc. They have an opportunity to share their story to the UCLA Spirit family and receive spirit packs from the UCLA Spirit Squad. Each month, a selected Battling Bruin is featured on the Spirit Squad website and invited to the Battling Bruins barbecues. The goal is to celebrate the strength of all the applicants, and that their stories and their spirit may inspire other Bruins facing hard times.
