The Marine Mammal Stranding Center is celebrating their 40th anniversary and over 5,000 rescues with a 5K run and a post-run party at the Jersey Shore.

The race will be held on May 19th in Brigantine from 9AM-12N at the Laguna Grill and Rum Bar where they'll also be holding a post-run party buffet.

The race is baby stroller and dog-friendly with gift baskets and prizes for first, second, and third place qualifiers in different age groups. There's also a free t-shirt for all who participate.

Register here -- after May 10th, the registration fee increases from $25 to $30 and again to $35 at the door on race day.
