For Pete's Sake 5K is a great fundraising race that each year raises money for some fantastic causes.

The 3rd Annual 5k will be on Saturday May 3rd at 11AM, starting and ending at Mallard Park in Manasquan.

T-shirt Pickup will be at the Manasquan Beach House from 6-9pm on Friday, May 2nd. There you can pick up your numbers and t-shirts, as well as bid on some great NFL autographed and other auctioned items.

Over the last two years For Pete's Sake has raised over $15,000 each for the Long Blue Line Scholarship Fund and The Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties. 

This year they will also be donating to the family of Jersey City Fire Captain Greg Barnas who died in the line of duty this year, giving his life in selfless service. He leaves behind a sick son.

If you wish to be a sponser, they are accepting $150 Banner Sponsors and minimum $300 T-Shirt sponsors with a Logo required. Checks are to be made to For Petes Sake Inc and mailed to 2424 Algonkin Trail Manasquan NJ 08736. All Sponsors must be in by April 6th, 2014. Please contact PJ Gibbs @ (732) 546-6936 for all details.

For Petes Sake is named for Race President PJ Gibbs' dad, Peter Gibbs, who was a lifelong Manasquan Resident. Peter spent his life giving back to others and selfless service. He was an usher at St. Dennis Church and was a member of the Manasquan Chain Gang from 1995-2011. Pete was always there when anyone needed anything, with no questions asked. PJ wants to keep his memory alive by giving back to the community.
