The ESS Annual Bug Push of Summer 2021

The ESS Annual Bug Push charity event is back!
Every summer, the ESS runs the Bug Push – teams of around 4 get together to push an old Volkswagen Beetle all the way around Ring Road as many times as possible over 12 hours!
For every $50 donated, teams pushed the beetle for an additional 30mins! All proceeds from this event went towards the United Way. Visit for more information about the organization.

Donations are now closed!

On July 11th, 2021, we pushed the Bug around the ring as many times as possible, and kept the teams going for the full 12 hours (7:00 AM to 7:00 PM)!

The event was also broadcasted via our ESS Instagram stories starting at 7am! Be sure to check out our Instagram @uvicess All the news!
