March 1, 2019 – Cypress, CA – On Saturday, February 23rd, Trident University International (Trident) took part in the 38th Annual Los Alamitos Race on the Base, held on the Los Alamitos Joint Forces Base in Los Alamitos, CA. A total of 15 staff members participated in various events that helped to raise money for local veterans’ causes.

Trident continues to maintain an active role in its local community. For their support of the military and veteran communities, the University was recognized by the City of Cypress as the 2018 BRACE Business of the Year.
