Asbury Park Beach Day Event

You’re invited… The National Federation of the Blind of New Jersey Sports and Recreation Division invites all to participate in our “Asbury Park Boardwalk Day” located at the Asbury Park Convention Hall, 1300 Ocean Avenue, Asbury Park, NJ 07712 set for Saturday, July 27th from 11 am to 4 pm. It will be fun to just spend time getting to know each other and getting some exercise along the oceanfront.

Activities will include walking the boardwalk, having lunch along the way then enjoying an ice cream before returning together to the Access Link pick-up spot. Each participant is responsible for their own expenses, including transportation and food.

Participants requiring individual or one on one assistance are required to bring their own aid or SSP who must be 18 years or older; aids or SSP’s will not be counted as a participant. There will be an option on the registration form indicating assistance provided by you and their name for our records. There will also be an option on the registration form for your family or friends to join in; registered participants are responsible for their invited minors. Please note that the president of the National Federation of the Blind of New Jersey, president of the NFBNJ Sports & Recreation Division, or the event coordinator has the right to cancel your registration.

Again, walking is involved so wear comfortable clothes and shoes, bring water and snacks and be prepared to get your 7,500 steps in – that translates to approximately 3 miles. Access Link participants should allocate enough time for an 11 am arrival by estimating your pick up to be at the end of your window, additional drop offs or pickups along the way and Jersey Shore traffic. Participants who arrive after 11 am will be required to meet up with the group independently and anyone leaving earlier than 4 pm will also be required to meet their vehicle independently.

Here are the particulars:
