Sponsor and Support Our Cause
Beauty and the Beach RunTM is traditionally a women-only race held annually on the beautiful NJ shore along the beach. The race is Aslan Youth Ministries annual fundraiser and this year to commemorate our 45th anniversary, we are opening the race to men, and we invite everyone to participate and celebrate our cause. The race will be known as Beauty and the Beach Run Change of Pace ~ a Run for Justice & Reconciliation.
Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 restrictions imposed on the race by the State of NJ and local government, Aslan sadly has to report that we are not allowed to plan the on-site race. However, unprecedented times call for new beginnings.
The year 2020 has been a difficult year, with the pandemic and a global call-to-action for racial equality and justice. We at Aslan recognize and celebrate our long history of service to African-American children. Our belief that Black lives matter has been Aslan’s mission for 45 years. We’ve helped over 4,000 children achieve their goals and dreams, by bringing together diverse leadership, staff, community residents, business owners and volunteers to benefit our children.
Currently, we are accepting on-line registrations for a virtual only option. Virtual racing allows participants to upload their time and share photos on social media celebrating the race. Registration for the virtual race will open July 26, 2020 and remain open until September 27, 2020. Runners may choose a 5 mile or 5K run or walk. By expanding the Beauty and the Beach Run to a virtual option, we are now able to recruit runners and walkers nationwide to support our cause and our work with children in New Jersey. This also means greater exposure for our sponsors from regional to national brand impressions.
This is Aslan’s premiere fundraiser and proceed directly support youth enrolled in our programs. Aslan is a non-profit organization and all contributions are tax-deductible.
Last year the race was featured on YES Network’s Running which aired in over 50 million households nationwide over the entire month of October. Sponsor logos were prominently displayed at the event, on video, and on local and social media. We have started promotions and will ramp-up our efforts in the next few weeks to reach many runners in the United States.
