Students, staff, residents 'Run to Remember' at Cal Poly

Runners will hit the road in San Luis Obispo for the 8th annual Run to Remember. The 5K race starts at 6 p.m. on Mott Lawn.

More than 200 students, staff and community members take part in the event every year. It promotes running safely at night and honors victims of sexual assault.

All of the money raised goes toward the Sexual Assault-Free Environment Center, or SAFER, on campus. The center holds various events throughout the year to educate people about sexual assault and promote the end of violence against men and women.

"it's important for the community to know as well as the campus here to know that sexual assault is a very real thing and that it can happen to anyone," said Matt Lancara, who works in the Student Life and Leadership office at Cal Poly.

The run is not too competitive but there are some prizes at stake. The first 100 runners get a free shirt and the first 150 runners get a reflective arm band.

Organizers hope to raise about $5,000.

We'll have more on this story tonight at 10 on the CW5, and 11 on KSBY.
