About our Sponsor, Miles For Matt

On July 20, 2009, 19-year-old Matt Scarpati was riding on the Wantagh State Bike Path.  At about 7:30 pm a drunk and speeding motorcyclist, racing northbound on the Wantagh Parkway, left the parkway and struck and killed Matt.  The sculpture, "Celebrate Life" that is in Cedar Creek Park, was born from a ghost bike that was presented to the Scarpati Family, as they fought for the guard rails that now create a barrier along the 4.5 miles of bike path that runs south of Merrick Road to the Jones Beach Theatre.  

We support young athletes through scholarships, training programs and through support of athletics at Sunrise Day Camp - a free day camp for children with cancer and their healthy siblings.  We have never forgotten how important MADD and the Victim Services were to us and to many others.  MADD supported us in court and showed us how to navigate the painful periods.  These services are free of charge, but nothing is truly free.  Therefore, we continue to support MADD.
