Last year’s Jersey Shore walk raised over $170,000 and saw over 1,700 walkers. That is an AWESOME turnout. We could not do these events without volunteer support.
When you volunteer you join the effort with hundreds of thousands of people to raise awareness and funds that allow the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) to invest in new research, create educational programs, advocate for public policy,and support survivors of suicide loss.

The walk has given people the courage to open up about their own struggle or loss, and the platform to change our culture’s approach to mental health. It is an amazing event that brings our communities together to raise voices for mental health awareness and suicide prevention.

Here are a few of the tasks we could use help with :
Volunteers to hang flyers locally before the walk (starting any day asap)
Volunteers to help set up tables and chairs before registration 6:30 am
Volunteers to sort & hang the bead necklaces and assist at beads table (re-fill colored beads as gets low)
Volunteer Greeter's, to direct people to tables at event
Volunteers to Put up lawn signs for walk route and sponsors
Volunteers to work the (pre-registered and walk up) registration tables so you would arrive 7:15 am (so we could to show you how.)
