Put on your running shoes and register to be part of the First Annual Beach to the Bay 5K Run this Saturday, April 24. Hosted by the Jersey Shore Animal Center, this event will take place at Brick Beach 3 in Brick Township, NJ on Route 35 North.
Runners can pay the $25 registration fee when sign up begins Saturday at 7:30am, with the run slated to begin one hour later. This fundraising event is sponsored by Weisleder Ford Lincoln Mercury Mazda of Brick Township, held in the memory of Justin Weisleder.
The Weisleder family has been a long-time supporter of the JSAC, and has adopted several pets from the center. Several members of the Weisleder family will be participating in the run, and will provide water for the runners as part of their sponsorship.
According to Patricia Wallace, Director of the JSAC, the respose has been overwhelming. Two hundred participants have preregistered with another hundred expected to sign up the day of the run. Prizes will be awarded to the first five men, and the first five women finishers.
