The 16th Miles for Matheny, the Matheny Medical and Educational Center’s annual fundraiser and community event, will be held Sunday, April 21, at:Liberty Park in downtown Peapack. Having grown from a small wheelchair walk and cycling ride in 1998 to an event that attracts more than 1,500 participants, volunteers and spectators, Miles brings Matheny students, patients, families and friends from the community together to enjoy a day of camaraderie and fun. “Our goal,” says Steve Proctor, Matheny president, “has always been to bring together the children and adults with disabilities with their able-bodied counterparts in a wonderful and uplifting day enveloped by the strong community spirit of our neighbors.”
The Matheny Medical and Educational Center is a special hospital and educational facility for children and adults with medically complex developmental disabilities. All funds raised at Miles for Matheny 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.
