Todd Deremer is the adaptive physical education instructor at Matheny’s Adult Learning Center in Hillsborough. He has worked at Matheny for more than 16 years and is passionate about the well-being of Matheny’s patients and students. And he is passing that passion down to his son, Ben. On May 31, at Miles for Matheny, Ben will be joining his father in their “Big Bike Race,” a 25-mile ride.
“Once again,” Todd says, “my little man will navigate and call the shots for 25 miles on his bike seat.” Deremer is asking his friends, family and Matheny colleagues to “please support us as we ride for ‘Daddy’s friends at work,’ whom Ben has come to know personally.” As of May 21, Deremer had raised $405.
The 25-mile route is one of five cycling rides at Miles for Matheny. Other events include the Lu Huggins Wheelchair Walk, a one-mile Fitness Walk and a Kids Fun Run, all preceded by a “Breakfast of Champions” provided by The Friends of Matheny.
All funds raised at Miles for Matheny will benefit programs and services that enhance the lives of the patients and students at Matheny and serve people with disabilities in the community. Premier sponsor is the Poses Family Foundation. Other major sponsors are: the Golub Family, Mariner Wealth Advisors – Madison, Partlow Insurance, Peapack-Gladstone Bank, Porzio Bromberg & Newman P.C. Attorneys at Law and WCBS Newsradio 880.
