About the Walk
The walk is named for Bruce Brunner Gorder, who was 37 when he died from melanoma in 1992, leaving a wife and young daughter.
To honor Bruce’s courage and his memory, his father Charles F. “Chuck” Gorder Sr. and family founded the Bruce Gorder UCSD 5k Walk for Melanoma.
This walk raises funds to directly support melanoma research at the Moores Cancer Center and has raised more than $1.1 million to date.
