BP fuels wheelchair walk

Wheelchair Walk participants in 2011.

R.P.C. Inc., petroleum wholesaler distributor in Randolph, NJ, that supplies six BP service stations in northwest Morris and Warren counties, will be a Lu Huggins Wheelchair Walk sponsor at the 15th annual Miles for Matheny. The sponsorship was made possible by a BP Fueling Communities grant. R.P.C., which nominated Matheny to be its grant recipient, supplies BP service stations in Randolph, Boonton, Hackettstown, Parsippany and Rockaway.

In the Lu Huggins Wheelchair Walk at Miles for Matheny, more than 100 children and adults in wheelchairs, with walking partners, travel 1.5 miles around downtown Peapack. There is also a 5K Race, five different Cycling routes and a Kids Fun Run. All funds raised 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.

Miles for Matheny is being held Sunday, April 22, at Liberty Park in Peapack. For more information or to register, log onto www.milesformatheny.org or call (908 234-0011, ext. 260.
