Matt’s 5K Pursuit

Every April, we remember Matt Haverkamp during the month of his birthday and support Matt’s legacy with a 5K run / walk. Matt’s 5K Pursuit is held on the beautiful grounds of Spring Grove Cemetery – the perfect setting for quiet reflection and bringing together so many people in remembrance of Matt. All proceeds from Matt’s 5K Pursuit benefit The Matt Haverkamp Foundation, which helps support the local police departments in and around the greater Cincinnati area by purchasing K9s and law enforcement equipment for them.

2017 marked the TWELFTH year for the annual Matt’s 5K Pursuit. Stay tuned for 2018 race information!
