It’s time again for what is fast becoming an annual Virginia Beach tradition: the JTWalk & Beach Party to raise funds for ALS will take place on the Virginia Beach oceanfront on Sunday, October 7th. The Real Estate Group is proud to be a sponsor of the event, and Broker/Owner Gary Lundholm and agent Mary Lou Lundholm will be participating in the walk.
The JTWalk was inspired by the battle local resident and surfer Josh Thompson has been fighting agaiises to be the biggest yet!
For those who have never experienced this event, think of it as a big family party with an abundance of food, live music all day long, face painting and treasure hunts, a bounce house, cotton candy, and more. The walk itself kicks off the entire day, with walkers meeting at 34th & Atlantic at 9:00 am and starting the walk at 10:30 am. After the walk ends, the beach party begins and goes until 5:00 pm.
Funds raised by the day-long event will go to two places. First, funds will be funneled directly to the ALS Association to continue funding research towards treatments and a cure. Funds will also be put towards building Grommet INLand, a state-of-the-art beach-style adventure camp for children of all ages, body types, and needs, as well as for wounded warriors. This camp will build on the success of the EveryBODY Grommet Island playground at 1st Street on the oceanfront.
