Join us for a beautiful morning run in the hills of Griffith Park on Sunday, November 13, 2016 for the META Dollars for Scholars Run, raising scholarship money for the META scholars.
One of our students recently send us this note:
Good Evening, I just finished my first week of college at CSU Long Beach. I've taken the first big step in the long road ahead of me and am slowly becoming acquainted to college life, and this would not have been possible if it weren't for the META Foundation. Thanks to the META scholarship, my greatest dream of attending college has been achieved. I look forward to my future here at school, as well as my future involvement with the META Foundation. Thank you very much, Fabian
Thank you for reaching out to friends, family, and colleagues to help META support Fabian and students like him in fulfilling their dreams of higher education!
