Immediately following the event the post race party will be held at the Little Silver Firehouse. The Little Silver PTO and Little Silver Fire Department will co-host the event and any money raised during it will be split by both organizations.
The PTO is looking raise additional money to build a fitness playground at the Markham Place Middle School. The playground would have pull-up bars, horizontal bars, boxes to jump on, a dip station and a sit up station. It would be open to the coaches and teachers as well as the community.
