Adam Schwab usually runs the 5K race at Miles for Matheny, the annual running, walking and cycling fundraiser and community event being held Sunday, June 1 at Liberty Park in Peapack, NJ. Now he’s on a mission to generate more support from colleagues at Pfizer Inc.’s Peapack site where he is a Manager and Principal Scientist in the Pfizer Global Supply group. His company has always strongly supported Miles, helping the cause by allowing participants to park in its facility on the day of the event. But Schwab would like to see more volunteers and participants from Pfizer. He has created an online Pfizer team on the Miles for Matheny website (www.milesformatheny.org) with a fundraising goal of $2,000, and he recently visited Matheny to take an informal tour and gather up some promotional materials.
All funds raised at Miles for Matheny will help support the Matheny Center of Medicine and Dentistry, where more than 800 of New Jersey’s kids, teens and adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities have access to the best medical, dental and therapy care possible. Major Miles sponsors are: the Poses Family Foundation; the Golub family; Partlow Insurance; Peapack-Gladstone Bank, Porzio Bromberg & Newman PC Attorneys at Law, BP Fueling Communities, Delta Dental of New Jersey, Inc., WCBS-TV and WCBS Newsradio 880.
