step-by-step, board-by-board





How much is it to participate in the walk?

It’s $20 per person for all ages.

Can I register in-person?

You can register in-person, but there may not be a guarantee you will get a shirt. We estimate how many walk participants through our pre-registration online.

How do I find where the walk will begin?

Put “Dover Ave, Lavallette, NJ” in your GPS. This is the beginning of Lavallette Boardwalk. For a landmark, it is three streets down from Barnacle Bills. If there is no parking at Dover Ave., you can park on the nearest street over. The streets that are names of NJ cities will be closer up the walk route.

What is the walk route and how long will it take?

The walk route is up the street side and walk back down the boardwalk with a total of just under 3 miles. However, anyone is free to turn around at any point and head back. For the full walk, it will take approximately an hour.

Are there any restrooms?

There are available restrooms at Crabs Claw on the sidewalk route back. 

Do I need to fundraise to attend the walk?

Fundraising is optional, but it is encouraged. Individual fundraising goal is set to $200. However, even raising $50 would make a big impact and adds up with all the walk participants! On the flipside, if you cannot attend the walk but would like to help fundraise, you can create a fundraising page.

What if it rains the day of the event?

The rain date is the following Saturday, September 30th from 9-11 am. You will be notified if you registered online. You can also follow us on Facebook or Instagram for any updates.
