THE CAUSE

James was a baseball loving, active 6 year old boy who lost his life in the tragic Newtown School shooting on December 14, 2012. James was born in Milford Ct and later relocated with his family to Newtown Ct. With a bunch of lasting happy memories here in Milford, the Mattioli family has decided to create a scholarship fund for a Foran or Law high school student planning to attend college. All proceeds from this race will go to these scholarships and will continue for years to come in memory of James.

In addition to these scholarships, the 2018 race will help fund programs at the Milford Public Library, the Boys and Girls Club of Milford, and youth sports programs offered through the Milford Recreation Department. Our hope is to keep the legacy of James close to our hearts here in Milford and give back the community in which James was a part of.
