Join us on Saturday, August 26 at 6pm along the boardwalk in Ventnor City, NJ, for Holton's Heroes' 2nd annual walk for pediatric brain injuries. WIth This year's program theme — "Light Up the Night" — WE hope to inspire awareness and acceptance for children recovering from brain injuries as we walk the picturesque Jersey SHore during magic hour.
About the Walk
All donations raised for this program support Holton's Heroes' mission to serve the community by connecting children who have suffered a life-threatening, post-birth brain injury with therapeutic tools and devices, enriching activities, educational information and resources for them and their loved ones.
Last year, over 200 participants in the first Holton's Heroes walk raised more than $10,000 that directly helped child brain injury survivors like Tessa, Owen, Aleena, and more! The bar was set high in 2016, but we hope to beat those marks this summer with your help.
This is a family-friendly event, so feel free to bring your whole clan, and please help us spread the word by sharing this page with everyone you know. Additionally, we invite you to bring glow sticks and flashlights to represent the bright light we hope to shine on pediatric brain injuries this evening.
We politely ask all attending walk participants to make a donation in honor of the Holton's Heroes "Light Up the Night for Pediatric Brain Injuries" Walk to help us further our foundation's mission of helping children and their loved ones dealing with a pediatric brain injury. Suggested donations are $8 for kids, $12 for adults, and $30 for "Super Hero" donors who wish to receive an extremely cozy, shore-themed commemorative walk tee plus a Holton's Heroes-inspired grab bag.
Don't forget! We offer Holton's Heroes kid tees here for families looking to get everyone involved in the fun. These shirts will ship out ahead of the walk if ordered by August 19.
All walk donors will receive a Holton's Heroes glow-in-the-dark support bracelet (while supplies last) and "Super Hero" walk participants will receive their reserved shirts & grab bags at event check-in. Additionally, we will offer free refreshments and tasty snacks for all attendees.

PARKING & Respectfulness
There is a local parking lot located near check-in that tends to fill up in the summer time. However, there is available street parking all around the island.
We mean this with peace & love, peace & love. Please be respectful of the Margate & Ventnor City residents by not parking in driveways or prohibited areas. Also, let's help keep the island clean by leaving no trash behind.
