JSRC's Virtual Race to Benefit "Fulfill"

The demand for food continues to rise during the Coronavirus crisis as soup kitchens and schools are closed.  Help the JSRC help our friends and neighbors impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic. Join our Virtual Race to help raise money for Fulfill (The FoodBank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties).  Fulfill's mission is to alleviate hunger and build food security in Monmouth & Ocean Counties and to make sure that all people at all times have access to enough nutritious food to maintain an active and healthy life.

The Jersey Shore Running Club is proud to announce that the Run4Fulfill event will be held as a virtual race beginning Friday, June 19 and ending on Sunday, June 28th. The entire net proceeds for this race go to our charity.  Remember that for every $1 raised we can turn it into 3 meals!

Event Details:

  • The race will cost $25 and include a unisex technical *T-shirt. (Pickup locations are being arranged at Bar A in Lake Como and Fulfill in Neptune.) 
  • Choose to either run 4 miles or walk 2 miles. Distances can be carved out of a longer run if desired. (ie. if running 6 miles, just report a portion of that run to us)
  • Runners/Walkers can plan to complete this race either in a solo run or with a small group of friends with appropriate social distancing.
  • Report your time and distance completed through our automated options. 
  • All net proceeds from this race will be donated to Fulfill.

* Add $5 if you would need the shirt shipped to your address.  We anticipate shirts would be mailed during the week of July 13th.

More About Fulfill: Fulfill provides a full suite of programs to provide the resources people need to become self-sufficient. Key Facts include:

  • Fulfill has experienced a 40 percent increase in the demand for food since March 13, 2020.
  • Fulfill has provided 950,000 additional meals since the start of the pandemic in March 2020.
  • Fulfill’s food costs have grown exponentially, as we work to meet the ever-increasing demand. In fact, they are now putting out bids and purchasing food from all over North America. Whichever vendor can get the food to Fulfill the quickest, gets the business. Despite our efforts though, they are still struggling to get many of our staples in a timely fashion.
  • Fulfill provides food to 289 feeding partners throughout Monmouth and Ocean Counties, including local pantries, soup kitchens, senior and community centers, and Boys and Girls Clubs, to name a few.

Hunger Won’t Win Here!

On-line registration will remain open until the last day of the virtual race.  If you can't run or walk, please select the donation option.
