Everyone’s a winner in the Kids Fun Run at Miles for Matheny, which introduces children to running for a cause.
The run is designed especially for the youngest racing enthusiasts. There are four short sprints: 50 yards for ages 3-4; 75 yards, ages 5-6; 100 yards, ages 7-8; and 150 yards, ages 9-10. All Fun Run participants receive a winner’s medal.
The 16th annual Miles for Matheny community event and fundraiser will be held on Sunday, April 21, at Liberty Park in Peapack, NJ. The Fun Run begins at 11:30 a.m. Other activities include the Lu Huggins Wheelchair Walk, a USATF-certified 5K race and five different cycling routes. All funds raised at the event will help support the Matheny Center of Medicine and Dentistry, which provides medical, dental and therapy care to Matheny’s inpatients and to people with disabilities in the community.
This year Porzio Bromberg & Newman P.C., Morristown, NJ-based attorneys at law, will again be the Kids Fun Run sponsor. Other major sponsors are: Poses Family Foundation, title sponsor; Partlow Insurance Agency; Peapack-Gladstone Bank; Affinity Federal Credit Union; and WCBS-TV and WCBS Newsradio 880.
