Everyone's a winner in the Kids Fun Run at Miles for Matheny, the annual fundraiser and community event held by the Matheny Medical and Educational Center. It's a wonderful way to introduce children to running for a cause. This year Porzio Bromberg & Newman P.C., Morristown-based attorneys at law, will again be the Kids Fun Run sponsor. PBN has sponsored this activity since its introduction in 2005.
The Kids Fun 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 will be held on Sunday, April 21, at Liberty Park in Peapack. The Fun Run begins at 11:30 a.m. Other activities include the Lu Huggins Wheelchair Walk, a USATF-certified 5K Road Race, five different Cycling routes; and The Friends of Matheny "Breakfast of Champions", followed by luncheon refreshments in the park. All funds raised at Miles 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 communities throughout New Jersey. Matheny is a special hospital and educational facility in Peapack for children and adults with medically complex developmental disabilities.
Other major sponsors are: Poses Family Foundation, title sponsor; Peapack-Gladstone Bank; Partlow Insurance Agency; Affinity Federal Credit Union; and WCBS-TV and WCBS Newsradio 880.
