The profits from Sunday's walk will be distributed by the Jetty Rock Foundation to the following local schools:
- Stafford Schools
- Southern Regional School District
- Beach Haven School
- LBI Consolidated School District
- St. Mary's Academy (formerly known as All Saints Regional Catholic School)
Stafford Mayor Greg Myhre and his family along with Councilmen Bob Henken, Tony Guariglia, George Williams and his wife participated in the Bridge walk.
A special participant was Mike McGurkin. Mike is 77 years old and lives on LBI. He celebrated his birthday by challenging himself to complete the Bridge Walk. He was joined in the walk by a crowd of family members, some who flew from different parts of the country nation to cheer him on to success on his special day.
Overall, it was a successful event, the original walk was organized ten years ago by C.G. Ruff and Melanie Magaziner.
