Jay Bade of Sell My Timeshare NOW Walks with ARDA ROC for Charity Fundraiser

Jay Bade, Vice President Business Development at Sell My Timeshare NOW and Timeshare Broker Services, was part of the National ALS Foundation’s largest single day walk and fundraiser, the 4th Annual JT Walk & Beach Party.

Earlier this month, in Virginia Beach, Virginia, Jay walked with the team from ARDA ROC in support of Josh Thompson, Frank Eck, CHKD, ALS the Virginia Beach Community. The 8,000 walkers participating helped raise over $1.2 Million for the charities, reaching 160 percent of their participant goal and 103 percent of their fundraising goal.

History of the JT Walk

Virginia Beach resident, Josh Thompson was an avid young surfer when he received his diagnosis of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, better known as ALS or Lou Gehrig’s disease in 2006. His life turned from a focus on riding the waves to fighting ALS.

In 2007, a group of Josh’s friends, including his brother Chris, decided to join the fight, as an outreach of their non-profit organization, the Virginia Gentlemen Foundation. Their efforts have not only helped fund ALS research but helped underwrite the development and creation of JT’s Grommet Island Beach Park & Playground for EveryBODY. This very special park is the only oceanfront park in the US specifically designed for people with disabilities.

A Job Well Done and a Lot of Fun for All

The Beach Party that followed the walk included great food provided by Beach Bully BBQ and Qdoba Mexican Fiesta, live entertainment by local acts, and special activities and food stations for kids. During the day, the walkers and their supporters consumed over 1100 hot dogs, 2000 servings of cotton candy, 6000 plates of barbeque, and 3000 plates of  Qdoba Mexican food.

Thanks Jay for being part of this important effort and for representing Sell My Timeshare NOW and Timeshare Broker Services so well. Please visit our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/SellMyTimeshareNOW for more photos from this special day.
