“We carefully selected Fulfill and Family Promise of Southern Ocean County as this year’s 5K beneficiaries because both organizations are on a mission to battle hunger and homelessness in Ocean County, which is something that Causeway cares deeply about,” said David C. Wintrode, President of Causeway Family of Dealerships/Causeway CARes. “The demand for food at the Jersey Shore is up 60 percent so far this year, according to Fulfill. We need to do our part to bring this statistic down.”
Fulfill has been a 5K beneficiary since the race’s inception five years ago. The nonprofit’s mission is to alleviate hunger and build food security in Monmouth and Ocean Counties and make sure that all people at all times have access to enough nutritious food to maintain an active and healthy life.
This year, Family Promise of Southern Ocean County was also selected as a 5K beneficiary. Its mission is to partner with communities to guide homeless children and their families toward achieving sustainable independence.
Last year, the 4th Annual Causeway 5K raised over $40,250 and saw a 50 percent increase in runners/walkers from the prior year. For 5K race donation opportunities, please contact Kaitlyn Strohmeier at 609-597-8083, ext. 1122 or email Kaitlyn.Strohmeier@CausewayCars.com.
