Team up for fund-raising

Team Melvin at last year’s Miles for Matheny.

Now is the time to start forming a fund-raising team for Miles for Matheny. Your team could include members of your school, church, book club or workplace—or it could just be family and friends. You can decide what Miles events you want to participate in and then create a team registration page. Set team fund-raising goals or generate a friendly competition among team members to see who can raise the most money.

To make your fund-raising efforts easier, you can create a team webpage at Just upload photos of you and your teammates, set your fund-raising goals and send emails to your contacts, asking them to support you at Miles for Matheny.

The 18th annual Miles for Matheny will take place on Sunday, May 31, at Liberty Park in downtown Peapack. The signature activity is the Lu Huggins Wheelchair Walk in which more than 100 wheelchair participants travel around the downtown area, accompanied by walking partners. Preceding the Wheelchair Walk will be a new one-mile Fitness Walk that will end where the Wheelchair Walk begins. There are also five Cycling routes through the picturesque Somerset Hills as well as a Kids Fun Run. And you can start the day with The Friends of Matheny’s “Breakfast of Champions.”

Funds raised at Miles for Matheny will benefit programs and services that enhance the lives of the children and adults at Matheny and serve people with disabilities in the community. For more information, log onto or call 908.234.0011, ext. 260.
