This is Jersey Shore Running Club's 30th Annual women's 5K run & walk, to benefit organizations with programs dedicated to providing shelter, counseling, advocacy and education for women and their families in Monmouth and Ocean Counties. 

Past participants consistently remark about how unique and special this event is.  Almost everyone is touched by the ceremony at the start of the race when the runners join hands and come to understand the need for all of us to join together to support these "safe harbors" for women and their children.

Volunteers needed   As always, volunteers are needed and appreciated - please contact us if you know someone interested in helping on race day.

Remember -Event will be held "Rain or Shine"

Please support our event sponsors! See you Saturday!
