Students From The Highlands Find A New Way To Spell H.O.P.E

H.O.P.E can be spelled a lot of ways, but if you ask students from Northern Monmouth County…they’ll give you the best answer I’ve ever heard.

The 1st annual H.O.P.E Walk is this Saturday May 12th at Middletown North High School benefiting 180 Turning Lives Around Inc. of Hazlet. I was recently contacted by a volunteer from the domestic abuse shelter asking for our support, and how could I say no when she explained to me how this event came to be.

New Jersey 101.5 Listeners

Students grades 6-12 from Northern Monmouth County (Hazlet, Keyport, Union Beach, Keansburg, The Atlantic Highlands etc.) have come together and have created this event to raise money and fund programs that will educate their peers on healthy relationships and make resources readily available to them.

The walk is being hosted by the Atlantic Highlands Leo Club and starts with registration at 8am and the walk beginning at 9am. The walk is an easy two miles around the high school track; and with your small donation of $20.00 the first 300 walkers will receive a H.O.P.E Walk T-shirt.

Monmouth County remains one of the highest counties in New Jersey for domestic violence incidents and to know that children are taking the nessecary steps to make sure that their peers are being educated outside of the school is truely an awesome thing.

So this Saturday if you don’t have plans, take an hour or two from your morning and help out 180 Turning Lives Around and keep in mind that your not only helping the children of Monmouth County but YOU ARE making New Jersey a better place to live.

Oh and by the way in case you were wondering what H.O.P.E stands for; and keep in mind that the students came up with this, it stands for Hold OPain Ends, and with all of our support we can make sure that is true to the last letter.

More info about the walk and a registration form can be found here.
