Bug Push is the charity event that the UVic Engineering Students’ Society (UVic ESS) hosts in partnership with the UVic United Way campaign. Teams of UVic students, faculty, staff, and corporate teams from across Victoria test their stamina, have fun, and raise funds while manually pushing a hollowed-out 1972 VW Beetle around UVic’s 2.2-km Ring Road. Each team pushes for a half-hour shift, with the goal of keeping the bug rolling for 12 hours straight. This year we the “Bug” has a zebra-inspired paint job!

You will need 3-5 people to push the bug: at least two to push and one to drive. Minimum $20 donation per team, and teams are encouraged to fund-raise on their own. You can also register as a individual and we will try to find a team for you to run with. All proceeds go to United Way. Donations will be accepted on the day of event.

Hello Everyone,

Biarki here, your current Vice-President Communications. As we don’t have a news letter this semester (due to the lack of a Chief Newsletter Editor) but we still enjoy writing these bios for each other. These bios a semi-factual and some creative liberates may have been taken.

Nathan Lawko (President)

You’re walking in the woods.
There’s no one around,
And your phone is dead.
Out of the corner of your eye you spot him,
Nathan Lawko.

He’s following you
About 30 feet back.
He gets down on all fours and breaks into a sprint.
He’s gaining on you.
Nathan Lawko.

You’re looking for your car,
But you’re all turned around.
He’s almost upon you now
And you can see there’s blood on his face!
My god, there’s blood everywhere!

Running for your life
(From Nathan Lawko.)
He’s brandishing a knife.
(It’s Nathan Lawko.)
Lurking in the shadows
Hollywood superstar Nathan Lawko.
Living in the woods,
(Nathan Lawko.)
Killing for sport,
(Nathan Lawko.)
Eating all the bodies
Actual, cannibal Nathan Lawko.

Now it’s dark and you seem to have lost him,
But you’re hopelessly lost yourself.
Stranded with a murderer,
You creep silently through the underbrush.…
