Cal Poly has not expanded its lecture space since 2012, but the total student population has increased almost 20 percent.
Hyland pitched for Cal Poly’s team for four years and stepped into the role of student assistant this year.
In total, the restoration required 350 staff from Caltrans, an independent contractor, 40 pieces of equipment and 1,500 trucks.
The grant money will be allocated to building a new innovation lab and expanding the existing accelerator program.
Half of the proceeds from the run will go toward the Alex Maier Memorial Fund and Scholarship Program.
