TEDxAsburyPark - Discount offered to JSRC Members


The 6th edition of TEDxAsburyPark (formerly TEDxNavesink) - Saturday, May 19, 2018 at Paramount Theatre, Asbury Park.

Passion drives ideas, people, and communities to action. Passion makes leaders. Passion combined with knowledge creates new ideas worth spreading. Passion can lead both to creation and destruction, to inspiration, suffering, grit, compassion, and extraordinary service. TEDxAsburyPark discovers and curates more than 25 speakers, entertainers, and artists who will share their passion stories on the Paramount Theatre stage in an all-day event.

Of special interest is our speaker Annica Lin - who will be running a half marathon before her talk on May 19. 

Annica Lin, ”How does running marathons transform my life?” Self-proclaimed Iron Chef, Marathon Runner - Annica spent her formative years in Taiwan, resolving to come to America to provide a better life for her family. To accomplish this, she saved up and bought herself a one-way ticket to NYC, where step by step, she worked herself up to her version of the American Dream. She earned a Master’s degree at NYU, and rose through the ranks at a stock brokerage on Wall Street. She later fell in love with digital media and decided to pursue it as her new career, becoming a Google-certified partner and working at advertising agencies. Through it all, she kept her passion for living her healthiest life. A self-proclaimed Iron Chef, she unintentionally discovered running in 2011. Struggling to run a mile on a dare, she stuck with the sport, and many enthusiastic years later, qualified for the Boston Marathon. She loves to share her passion for running and wants to help people fall in love with the sport.

Discount Code is JSRC and is good for 15% off reserved seats.

The 2018 Monmouth-Ocean County Special Olympics Track and Field Meet is scheduled for Saturday, May 12 at Long Branch High School.

The Jersey Shore Running Club has been volunteering at this meet for over 20 years!

We need at least 30 (preferably more) volunteers to help with escorting athletes, scoring, timing, awards and other tasks associated with the event. Volunteers should plan on being at the high school by 8:30 a.m.. The meet is usually over by 2 or 3 p.m. If you can't be there by 8:30 or can't stay the entire time, that's fine. Just let us know ahead of time so we can be sure we have appropriate coverage.

Online registration for volunteers is now open. You may sign up here.
If you are coming with family or friends, please make sure everyone is signed up so we have an accurate count.

Parents - if your children require community service hours, this is an excellent opportunity for them. Please answer "Yes" for the community service letter question when you sign them up. That way we know who to reach out to after the event.

Thank you and we hope to see you there!
If you have any questions, please contact JSRC Special Olympics Event Coordinator, Marianne Ploskonka
