Matt’s Run is a growing tradition at Cal Poly Pomona that unites hundreds people and raises money for student scholarships.
The 5k walk/run celebrates the life and legacy of Matthew Myers, a Cal Poly Pomona communications student who died in 2005 after a car struck him on campus. After his death, his family worked with the university to sponsor an event that would give back to the community as Matt did. Since he loved to run and had a passion to serve others, the family decided that a scholarship 5k would be the best way to honor him.
The scholarship program has given 48 awards in the past eight years.
