Helping to enhance the quality of life for people with disabilities


Matheny Medical and Educational Center is proud to host the 17th annual Miles for Matheny benefiting The Matheny Center of Medicine and Dentistry where more than 800 of New Jersey’s kids, teens, and adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities come for the best possible outpatient medical, dental, and therapy care.

Please join us for this inspiring event bringing  together our patients, students, family, friends, and the community as we enjoy a day of cycling, running, walking, friendship and fun.  Whether you  want to challenge yourself with a 5K road race, bike one of our 5 cycling routes, register your child for a fun run sprint, or just  stroll in the one-mile wheelchair walk, this event is for you!

  • 5K Road Race - USATF-NJ NBGP 500 Event - 300-400 runners will race through the beautiful Somerset Hills  on town and rural roads in this USATF sanctioned race.
  • Lu Huggins Wheelchair Walk - enjoy fun and fitness walking alongside 100 Matheny children and adults who "wheel" the streets of downtown Peapack. Or, just come and cheer them on from the sidelines!
  • Cycling  – our cycle routes transverse the most beautiful rural country roads in NJ. You can choose from the 10, 25, 35 and 50 mile rides or, the highly challenging "Hills of Attrition" for endurance cyclists (approx. 50 miles).
  • Kids Fun Run - Children ages 3-10 enjoy friendly competition where they are all winners. Many parents find this is a great way to introduce their children to "running for a cause."
  • Breakfast of Champions and refreshments throughout the Event – Don’t miss the delicious breakfast hosted by the Friends of Matheny as well as post-event  refreshments.


Every year, the Matheny Center of Medicine and Dentistry treats more than 800 people with disabilities but did you know that less than 50% of the cost of that care is covered by insurance?  Every dollar you raise for Miles for Matheny will close that gap, helping to make certain that those with the greatest need continue to get the support and services they deserve. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you on June 1st!
