Come join us for the Jersey Shore Rescue Mission 5K Race and Family Walk on Saturday October 24, 2020!  This event will take place on the boardwalk in Asbury Park, Ocean Grove and Bradley Beach, NJ.  Proceeds from the event will support the Jersey Shore Rescue Mission.

Jersey Shore Rescue Mission ministers to the homeless, helpless, and hopeless in Asbury Park by meeting their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs through a structured program which enables them to lead responsible, productive lives. A USATF sanctioned event, we encourage you to show your support for those who are striving for recovery from drug and alcohol addiction.  

You can support the Jersey Shore Rescue Mission in a number of ways!

  • Register to participate!
  • Consider a donation above your registration fee. (*Donations are tax deductible.)
  • Fundraise by asking family & friends to sponsor your run or walk with a donation.
  • Get your family & friends involved and run as a team! Use the referral code you receive when you register, and if 5 friends register with your code, you'll get your registration fee refunded! 
  • Become a sponsor and help make the race possible! Email Neal Richards for more information -

This is a great family fun event! Bring a friend to cheer you on or create a team to fundraise for the event. We would love for everyone to experience freedom from addiction, but until that is possible we plan to race, walk and raise money to support the Jersey Shore Rescue Mission.
