The first ever “Cure at the Shore” place this summer on the weekend of August 8th & 9th at the beaches of the Jersey Shore. On Friday September 11th, the participating South Jersey Beach Patrols celebrated the successof the event and presented a check to representatives from Susan G. Omen for $9,296.
The Lifeguards wore the pink “Cure at the Shore” t-shirt and offered the same t-shirt to the public for a $10 donation to the Susan G. Komen® Central and South Jersey. The goal was to “PINK OUT” the Jersey Shore.
100% of the profits went to Susan G. Komen to help fight against breast cancer.
Cure at the Shore was not just for Lifeguards. Anyone can support the fight against breast cancer by going to cureattheshore.com.
The Idea for Breast Cancer Awareness on the beach patrol in Wildwood.
Marty Hagan is a current Wildwood Lifeguard who sits on Magnolia Avenue Beach in Wildwood. Marty
is competitor, a leader a family man and a friend. He came up with the idea that the beach patrol could raise money for a cause such as Omen.
Marty Hagan Says…
“I just think that lifeguards put a lot of effort into training and preparation for their beach patrols. Lifeguards are
also in the eye of the public, so if we could raise awareness for such a great cause, it is a win-win for everyone.”
“I initially thought the idea of “Cure at the Shore” could be applied to an individual event such as a long distance
row, a run, or a swim, but with help from my Chief and Captain, it expanded into a much broader concept that
will involve a lot more people and hopefully raise a lot more money for the Cure.”
Captain Ed Schneider “Ten South Jersey Beach Patrols have partnered with Wildwood Beach Patrol’s “Cure at
the Shore.” Lifeguards are extremely excited to get their shirts and join the “PINK OUT.”
Chief Steven P. Stocks “Cure at the Shore was a great idea and the beach patrols of South Jersey have rallied
for the cause. I would like to thank all of our partners and donors for supporting the fight against Breast Cancer!”
