Miles for Matt Foundation Celebrate Life 5K Run/Walk

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 the Jones Beach Theatre.  We celebrate the athlete in each of us.

$250 Cash Prize to Overall Male and Female Winners – $100 Cash Prize to 2nd Overall Male and Female and $50 Cash Prize to 3rd Overall Male and Female!   Virtual runners not eligible for cash prize.
