Matt became a Rocklin Police Officer in 2001.  He was dedicated to keeping our community a safer place for all of us to live.  Matt was a firearms instructor for his department and a member of The Rocklin/Roseville SWAT Team.  He specialized in drug and alcohol detection.  Matt was the recipient of the MADD Award, LIfe Saving Award and the Bronze Medal of Honor.  Matt loved is job, his family and the community he grew up in.  Matt's life was cut short while on duty with the Rocklin Police Department, by a drunk driver October 9, 2005.  We cherish the memories we shared together.  His death has created a void in our lives that cannot be filled.

We wanted to keep Matt's name alive in this community by doing good things.  The concept of this Foundation started the week of October 9, 2005 by personal donations and has continued by fund raiser and donations over the past 9 plus years.

The specific purpose of the Foundation is to continue and encourage the pursuit of education in Protective Services.  This includes the pursuit of education related to the medical field and the protection and security of Local, State and National security.  The Foundation provides financial support to graduating seniors through scholarships to Del Oro High (Matt's High School) and to the Rocklin High Schools.  Applicants are received from the High Schools and are selected by our Board of Directors.

Run Rocklin has contributed $100,000 to The Matt Redding foundation.  Our Thanks to all of the participants, sponsors and service provides. who together created this sucessful community event. It warms our hearts to see this Foundation grow through this community event.  Please join us for the 12th Annual Run Rocklin on April 6th.  Proceeds from this event will be directed to the Foundation.
