JSAC is going virtual for the 2020 season

JSAC is virtually "Walking for the Arts" this year.

You don't have to walk alone! This year you can walk with your four-legged friend or you can walk with your family group of 4 on the Jersey Shore boardwalk. Details are available on the registration pages of RunSignUp.com.

We encourage our supporters to BE CREATIVE! Dress Fido and you up for your walk and get some selfies with you and the pup. Get your gaggle of gal pals for a great group shot. Post your photo on Facebook or Instrgram with the hashtag #wesupportjsac and we will recognize the best photo on our website and social media. Plus we will have special prizes (Pet portraits of your favorite pet AND a limited edition screenprint from Molly Johnson, JSAC resident studio artist).

We look forward to your photos and we are thankful for your support. And of course, we'll see you in person next "Run for the Arts" 5K - 9/11/21!

Here Are Your Options:

Virtual races happen all the time, and allow you to join the fun without the crowds. You simply walk the distance on your own, and report your results.

Event: 1-mile Virtual Dog Walk
You and your four-legged best friend can both support the arts. Once you register a race tag will be emailed to wear for your virtual event. Please post your virtual participation on social media (Facebook or Instagram) with #wesupportjsac and we'll post your photo on our race page. Race shirts can be made available for pick-up at the Jersey Shore Arts Center when you present your race tag.
Price: $25.00 Race Fee
Registration: Registration ends August 29, 2020 at 11:59pm EDT

Event: 2-mile Boardwalk Virtual Group Walk
Your family, friends, and coworkers can team up to support the arts and walk the boards from the south end of the Ocean Grove Boardwalk to Asbury Park Convention Center. Enjoy the ocean views and take a group shot. Post your group shot on social media (Facebook and Instagram) and we'll post your photo on our race page. Because of finances this year due to COVID-19, we cannot guarantee more than 2 shirts per group. Additional shirts can be purchased if available. Be creative! We will give a special recognition to the most creative groups.
Price: $25.00 Race Fee

Unfortunately, we are not holding this 5K event this year. We have switched our event to an online virtual "walk" event due to health and safety concerns, capacity restrictions, and budgetary constraints. Due to COVID-19 closures, this year has been a challenge for our organization. It pains us to cancel such a fun event that raises funds for our facility but, we believe it's in the best interest of our emergency service providers, volunteers, and Ocean Grove Community that this year's event happens virtually.

If you chose this option, please keep a copy of this letter for your tax filing needs, and 100% of your check or credit payment will go towards our Accessibility Project. 

We are eager to have you enter next year's "Run for the Arts" 5K - 9/11/21. Until then, be healthy and safe. We look forward to seeing you in person next year.

We understand. Please SAVE THE DATE for next year's race: 9/11/21. We can't wait to see you in person next year.
