The 2nd annual Matt's Run attracted about 450 participants.

Hundreds of people turned out for the 2nd annual Matt's Run on Oct. 6, at Cal Poly Pomona. The 5K run/walk honors the memory of Matthew Myers, a Cal Poly Pomona student who died tragically in a traffic accident on campus in 2005.

The event attracted about 450 runners and many volunteers, who helped raise nearly $30,000 for the Matthew Myers Memorial Scholarship Fund.

With matching funds from Myer's parents, Kevin and Chris, six students were each presented a $500 scholarship after the run.

They are:

  • Paulina Alcaraz  
  • Annette Hernandez  
  • Daniel Peraza  
  • Holly Walker  
  • Eva Sanchez  
  • Hovik Mekhijan          

University Photographer Tom Zasadzinski spent the morning capturing the event for a slideshow set to music composed and performed by Matthew Myers. Take a look,
