It's the inaugural attempt to break a Guinness Record, and you could be a part of this great event for an excellent cause!

As SquanStrong continues to diligently try to get people back into their homes since Sandy, you can help and have fun at the same time by taking part in the Jersey Shore Kilt Run/Walk on March 22nd.

They are attempting to break a Gunness Book of World Record for "most participants wearing a kilt at one event". (The current record is held by the city of Perth, UK, at 1700 participants).

The Kilt Run/Walk takes place in Manasquan and is a two mile event. All registered participants must wear a kilt that is plaid with two buckles, according to the Guinness Book of World Records Rules & Regulations. All participants must start and finish in their kilts, but there is no pressure to race. You can run, jog, walk, skip or crawl if you have to, but leave that kilt on to do it!!!

You can register for the Kilt Run/Walk and pick up a kilt this Saturday, March 1st, from 11 am - 3 pm, at Leggett's Sand Bar, 217 1st Ave., Manasquan.

Proceeds from this event will benefit SquanStrong, 501c3. This charity started as a coat drive after SuperStorm Sandy and is still working hard to do what they can for area residents affected by the storm. In fact, SquanStrong has gone from Atlantic City to Asbury Park and as far as Oklahoma in their quest to help people.
