JSRC Recognized by Special Olympics NJ at Summer Games
The Jersey Shore Running Club was recognized as a Special Olympics New Jersey (SONJ) Platinum Partner at a reception before the start of the annual Special Olympics Summer Games at The College of New Jersey on Friday, June 8. The Club was honored for their contributions to SONJ from our annual RunAPalooza event and our work on the annual SONJ Area 6 (Monmouth & Ocean Counties) track meet. Additionally, JSRC representatives got to walk in the Opening Ceremonies with Area 6 athletes. Over the last 22 years, the JSRC has raised over 1 Million dollars for SONJ. The JSRC is proud of our partnership with SONJ and looks forward to continuing it into 2019!
