The annual run and walk, taking place in Island Heights, is a great way to enjoy a beautiful spring day here at the Jersey Shore and get some great exercise. Let's face it after all that has gone on in the last two years, anytime you can get outdoors for a nice neighborhood event, it's a welcome sight.
