People from all walks of life join in the The JT WALK. You can, too. It’s the Oceanfront’s biggest fundraiser of the year. And when we’re done walking, we throw one of the year’s biggest beach parties, too. So don’t miss it. Grab your family, friends and co-workers and start a JT Walk team today!

The JT Walk Beach Party


After a day of fundraising, it’s time to party. The JT Walk Beach Party never disappoints. It’s all-day party with live music, cold drinks, craft food trucks, and tons of fun for the kiddies, too. It all starts at 11 a.m. on the beach at 31st street. Don’t miss it! (Wristbands required for entry.)


Josh Thompson was a fun-loving surfer, husband and father of two when he was first diagnosed with ALS. Ever since, his friends and family have been determined to help him fight back. Twelve years ago, they started the annual JT Walk to raise money and awareness for ALS research. Along the way, they made our city more fun and accessible for wounded warriors and kids with disabilities, too. The results have been extraordinary.
