Ok road runners and walkers, get your sneakers and gear ready for one of the Shore’s great annual 5K events that’s taking place this Saturday, May 20th. It’s the Bay Head 5K Memory Run to benefit the Kate Shea Foundation. The race is a well organized 5K walk/run on a USATF Certified course which starts at East Avenue and Karge Street and ends at the Bay Head Firehouse at 81 Bridge Ave. Following the race, there will be a trophy ceremony with refreshments in the firehouse parking lot. And don’t forget about the after party at Martell’s Tiki Bar on the boardwalk in Pt. Pleasant Beach.

The Kate Shea Foundation was founded by and is operated by loving family members and friends of Kate Shea. Kate called Bay Head home for many summers of her short but fulfilling life. She passed away at the young age of 25 of Leukemia. Beginning in 2004, the race has grown from a couple hundred runners to over a thousand today. The proceeds from the Bay Head 5K will go to The Kate Shea Foundation to support its mission of providing funds to research organizations fighting cancers and youth education. To date, the foundation has raised over $300,000 since it began in 2004.

Personally, I had the pleasure and honor of knowing Kate, as we were classmates at St. Rose High School in Belmar, both graduating the same year. In high school, everybody who knew her liked her. She was one of the nicest people in our graduating class.

For all the details and to register for the race/walk, go to If you are registered or plan to register, you’ll be helping out a tremendous foundation. Good luck Saturday!!
