Jersey Shore Rescue Mission 5K Race & Family Walk

Sat October 26, 2024 Ocean Grove, NJ 07756 US

Fundraising Tips

So you’ve registered for the race and now it is time to take the next step! Set up your fundraiser and help raise valuable support for the Jersey Shore Rescue Mission. 

We are issuing a challenge to everyone who registers for the race: raise $200! (And it's easier than you think!)

But why $200? Here's what it means at Jersey Shore Rescue Mission:
  • A meal for all of our residents and guests
  • Or an overnight stay including breakfast, dinner, a shower and clothing for 7 men
  • Or counseling sessions for the men in our addiction recovery program

Imagine the collective impact: if 300 people raise $200 each, that's a whopping $60,000! 🤯 Together, we can create a huge positive change in our community.



Here's how to raise $200 easily:

1. Ask 6 people to contribute:

  • $25 from yourself 
  • $25 from your significant other 
  • $40 from two family members 
  • $10 from a few coworkers 
  • $50 from a friend (or $25 from two friends)

2. Utilize our pre-made graphics and share about your fundraiser on your social media! Better yet, connect your fundraiser directly to Facebook and invite your friends to join.
