Participants in our 7th Annual Lobster Run 5K Run/Walk to Care for the Coast had a great day to soak up the sun, listen to The Attic play fun tunes, drink beer from Ross Brewing, and enjoy brunch from Langosta Lounge.
Nearly 300 people came out on Saturday, April 30 to show their support for protecting the coast we all love so much. Many others stopped by to say hello and ask about the work of the Littoral Society.
Other event sponsors are: OceanFirst Bank, Playa Bowls Powered by Juice Beach, Muller Insurance Company, the Bayshore Family of Companies, Boardwalk Family Chiropractic, The Pilates Project, Team Turtle, and Parker|Waichman LLP.
Since the Lobster Run began in 2015, the work of the Littoral Society has grown exponentially. We're cleaning up more beaches, restoring more shoreline, bringing more children to the coast, and working harder than ever to ensure lawmakers protect recreational fishing and access to beaches, while reducing the pollution harming our coastal waterways.
The involvement of Society members, volunteers, sponsors, our board and countless others has helped us build oyster reefs in Delaware Bay, run educational programs on Sandy Hook, and organize wildlife excursions around Jamaica Bay. The course for the race carried runners and walkers past sites where, with volunteer help, we've planted dune grass and restored a maritime forest.
So, thank you to everyone who came out for the Lobster Run and we hope to see you at many more Littoral Society events.
