Join us as we commemorate the 5th anniversary of Superstorm Sandy
and stand in solidarity with those recently impacted
by Hurricane Harvey & Hurricane Irma
On Saturday, October 28th at 10am (RAIN OR SHINE) help us break the
Guinness Book World Record for "Most Sand Angels Made Simultaneously."
Registration is $5.00 a person and 100% of funds raised will support disaster relief & recovery.
Currently the record is 1,387 held by Ludington, a western Michigan city. Check it out!
It's time to bring that record to New Jersey!
Both OceanFirst Foundation and New Jersey Natural Gas
will donate $10 each for the first 1,500 registrants.
All donations and donations matched will equally benefit
Ocean County Long Term Recovery Group and The Salvation Army's Emergency Disaster Services.
Read a little about these special organizations--
Ocean County Long Term Recovery Group: Established in November 2012 in the aftermath of Superstorm Sandy, Ocean County Long Term Recovery Group (OCLTRG) has been a trusted resource and lifeline for households, helping them navigate the complexities of the recovery process. Since the OCLTRG began assisting Sandy Survivors in 2013, more than 2,300 families have been helped by the OCLTRG and their partners. OCLTRG has hosted 250 recovery workshops, assisted 5,000 residents with recovery services, and facilitated $12 million to homeowners.
The Salvation Army's Emergency Disaster Services: The Salvation Army began offering assistance to disaster survivors after a major hurricane hit Galveston, TX in September 1900. Since then, The Salvation Army has responded to numerous natural disasters, transportation accidents, civil unrest situations and terrorist attacks. By providing beverages, meals, and emotional and spiritual care to first responders and survivors, The Salvation Army strives to bring hope and healing to people who find themselves in the midst of extremely difficult situations.
Making a Sand Angel isn't as easy as you may think.
Guinness has some pretty strict rules and can disqualify us if we don't follow them.
So read the steps below and maybe practice in your living room, the park, or even the beach!
Steps to Making a Sandy Angel:
1. Line up next to each other or spread out around the area.
2. Stand far enough apart so that when you spread your arms you can't touch the person next to you.
3. Fall gently into the sand onto your back.
4. Keep your entire body flat in the sand.
5. Brush your arms between your head and waist in a sweeping motion.
6. Move your legs apart as far as they will go and then together.
7. Repeat these motions (it's like doing a jumping jack while lying down) until you have made indentations in the sand.
8. Someone will stand at your feet and pull on your arms to help you up.
9. Be sure to get up without stepping on your sand angel or making a handprint in the middle of it.
10. All participants must make their sand angel for at least 30 seconds.
