Forty-seven years ago, Bill, Lynn Ann, Craig & I founded Aslan Youth Ministries and started on an adventure of a lifetime. Aslan will always be at the center of my heart!

Many of you have helped me each year as I ride my trusty Hoveround wheelchair 5K (3.1 miles) for the children of Aslan Youth Ministries! While many talk about solving the problems in our inner cities in America, Aslan keeps on successfully addressing those needs as we've done for almost 50 years!  We bring people together in the right way and the only way that works - changing people's hearts. My Smile On Your Brother Team name is taken from the great 60s rock hit, Get Together, by the Youngbloods. 


Come on people now, smile on your brother. Everybody get together, try to love one another right now.


Aslan is a light shining on a hill for urban, inner-city children, and children in Haiti. 

Please click on the blue SUPPORT A TEAM button above!! Help us always keep Aslan's doors open to our children. 

For almost a half-century, Aslan has been changing the world . . . one child at a time! God bless you for joining us!

Story

15th Annual Beauty and the Beach Run Race

The first Beauty and the Beach Run Race was held in 2007. Thankfully in the past two years we navigated the devastation of the pandemic and created a successful hybrid race where runners and walkers can choose to participate on-site or fundraise for Aslan.

In celebration of our work in bringing together people from all walks of life and of all racial backgrounds to benefit Aslan’s Children, we are pleased to announce that our 15th Annual Beauty and the Beach Run on-site Race is relocating to Sandy Hook, NJ.

Beauty & the Beach Off-Shore will be held August 25 through September 30, 2022.

Aslan Youth Ministries is thankful for the hundreds of thousands of dollars raised from runners and walkers over the years. Historically, the race raises awareness of our mission to serve at-risk youth residing in Monmouth County NJ. All the children we serve live below the federal poverty level, who, in addition to experiencing poverty as an adversity, may be subjected to the experiences of abuse, neglect, and family dysfunction, along with a host of other stressors, including community violence, discrimination, and peer victimization.

We have continued innovating our services to support youth, families, and our local communities. An equally essential part of our organization is our volunteer program. We proudly bring together a community of diverse residents, who serve as tutors and mentors for Aslan’s children.

The heart of our ministry is our volunteers, and many have given so much to help us ensure our children thrive. Evidence of that is in the many success stories of our Aslan Alumni. You may read more about Aslan’s Alumni and their proud legacy of successes - click here.

The success of the tutoring program hinges on recruiting dedicated volunteers. COVID-19 put a stop to all volunteer recruitment. However, in late 2020, with funding from Impact 100 Jersey Coast, who believes in our methodology, Aslan was able to hire a Director of Volunteers who is spearheading the efforts of rebuilding the volunteer program and matching tutor/mentors with children.

In addition, Aslan’s work in Haiti is to help people escape the devastation of poverty by empowering their lives – physically, mentally, and spiritually – so that they can, in turn, become change-agents for their nation. We have a clinic to serve the medical and nutritional needs of the community, Maranatha Church addresses their spiritual needs, and our school is devoted to educational enrichment for the 400 families we work with.

We are proud of our 15th Annual Beauty and the Beach Run designed by women for woman. Proceeds raised from this race support our programs for at-risk disadvantaged children served by Aslan Youth Ministries.

This year’s on-site race is scheduled for September 24, 2022.
