Facebook will likely prompt you to “add a donate button” to your post.

Do NOT opt into the “donate” button if you want your funds to be attributed to your efforts. When donations are given through Facebook, they are given to BIANJ anonymously weeks after the transaction, and we have no way of tracking where it came from. Unfortunately, once funds are given through the donate button, we have no control over them and cannot move them to your fundraising page.

It is best to include a link to your fundraising page instead.

If you are attending Saddle River Park, Mercer County Park, Bradley Beach Boardwalk, or Mt. Laurel, you will be able to pick your t-shirt during the registration period (9:00AM). If you are participating as a runner at Bradley Beach, you can pick your packet up at the Wonder Bar on October 8th, between 3:00pm-7:00pm.
