Step Up for The Arc
The Arc's Walk & 5K is the biggest annual community event. Join us for a day of fun - great for the whole family! Arrive early for bagels and coffee, and stick around for our rockin' after-party with free BBQ, beer on tap, games, prizes, and live music! Plus, free day-of-event pass to the Silverball Museum in Asbury Park, a $25 value.
This year's walk and 5K routes will hug the water's edge of Shark River for a scenic path. The 5K route is a USATF-certified course.
Why Walk? Why Donate?
At The Arc of Monmouth, we believe that people with intellectual/developmental disabilities (I/DD) are defined by their individual strengths, abilities, and dreams -- not by their challenges. Step Up for The Arc is a statewide initiative with walks held locally by every county chapter to promote inclusion and awareness. The Arc of Monmouth has held an annual walk for more than two decades.
Join the fun as a walker, runner, donor, or sponsor to support individuals with I/DD and their families. All proceeds from this event go directly to The Arc of Monmouth's many programs, including residential services, vocational training and continuing education, behavioral healthcare, and recreation.
