Step Up for The Arc

Thank You!

The 2018 Step Up for The Arc Walk & 5K raised more than $60,000! We could not have done this without you.

On Saturday, April 14, 2018, more than 700 people gathered on the Asbury Park Boardwalk for The Arc of Monmouth’s largest community fundraiser: Step Up for The Arc Walk & 5K. The sun was shining for both the 5K race and the fun walk, which was led by Asbury’s own Tillie and the Asbury Park High School marching band.

The after-party kicked off inside Convention Hall following the race. Music was provided by DJ Nicky and one of The Arc’s favorite bands, Shuffle, who kept everyone dancing and singing along. After working up an appetite on the boardwalk, attendees enjoyed a BBQ lunch provided by the Lodges of the 17th Masonic District and dessert from Day’s Ice Cream. The carnival games were a huge hit with prizes, and Cinderella made a special appearance for photos.

Thanks again to everyone who participated in this year’s event - Sponsors, Donors, Runners, Walkers, and Volunteers. We hope you had as much fun as we did.
