Just for kids

Kids Fun Run at Miles for Matheny 2013.

Looking for a wonderful way to introduce your kids to running for a cause? Thanks to sponsor Porzio Bromberg & Newman P.C., Attorneys at Law, you can do just that at the Kids Fun Run at Miles for Matheny.

Designed especially for the youngest racing enthusiasts, the Kids Fun Run consists of four short sprints, divided by age category, for children between the ages of 3 and 10. It gives everyone a chance to be a winner in a very non-competitive atmosphere. All Fun Run participants receive a winner’s medal. Here is a breakdown of the sprint lengths: ages 3-4, 50 yards; ages 5-6, 75 yards; ages 7-8, 100 yards; ages 9-10, 150 yards.

The 17th annual Miles for Matheny will be held on Sunday, June 1, at Liberty Park in downtown Peapack, NJ. In addition to the Kids Fun Run, other activities include the Lu Huggins Wheelchair Walk, a 5K Road Race, five different Cycling routes and the “Breakfast of Champions” provided by The Friends of Matheny. All funds raised support the Matheny Center of Medicine and Dentistry, which provides medical, dental and therapy care to Matheny’s inpatients and people with disabilities in communities throughout New Jersey. Major sponsors, in addition to PBN, are: Partlow Insurance, Peapack-Gladstone Bank, WCBS-TV and WCBS Newsradio 880.
