Beach Days for All is a Charity founded by Jessica Krill, mother of two special needs children and employee of Children’s Specialized Hospital. As an advocate for children with special needs , Jessica’s mission is to integrate Jersey Shore beaches so that all families with special needs children, wheelchair bound adults, and our disabled veterans have functional beach access and can enjoy the touch, feel and smell of the ocean.
The purpose of Beach Days for All is to raise and distribute funds to purchase appropriate handicap access. Therefore, beaches will be more accessible for people with disabilities.
On the heels of success on our first beach in Seaside Park, Beach Days for All partnered with Matrax are gearing to get our second beach up and running in Point Pleasant. Using the Matrax mats from the initial access point on the beach and laying them down to create closer beach access for all. The mats will be T-d off so everyone can find their perfect spot in the sand. There has been such an overwhelming outpouring of support and we appreciate everyone’s kindness and generosity in helping us make this come to life for so many.
We would like to dedicate this beach in memory of Callan Costa. The beach was always Callan’s happy place. His face would light up the sun with his smiles as he felt the wonderful breeze, smelling the salt air and squishing his toes in the sand. With your support we are looking to make Jersey Shore beaches everyone’s happy place.
