Special Olympics Track and Field Meet


The 2017 Monmouth-Ocean County Special Olympics Track and Field Meet will be held Saturday, May 13 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
