Free Cardiac & Concussion Screenings for Kids Community Medical Center and the Matthew J. Morahan, III Health Assessment Center for Athletes, are offering free cardiac and concussion screenings for young athletes! Register online at https://www.rwjbh.org/events/event/?event=35951.
Open to the first 75 athletes | 6-18 years old
Open to the first 75 athletes | 5-18 years old
Screenings are recommended to be repeated every 2 years.
When preliminary testing to identify, serious cardiac problems is provided to young athletes, sudden cardiac arrest and tragic deaths may be avoided. Ninety percent of sudden cardiac deaths in young athletes occur during or after athletic activities and hidden heart conditions are often the cause. This cardiac screening will help to identify children, aged six to 18 years of age, who may require further testing or intervention.
The concussion baseline screening is for children, ages five to 18 years old. Having a concussion baseline study (ImPACT) can help identify issues in the future. Children five to 11 will be tested on an iPad which is much more game-like and makes the testing fun. If a child is believed to have suffered a head injury, this screening test may be used to evaluate the severity of the head injury and determine when it is safe to return to normal activities.
The screenings are being offered at Toms River Intermediate East with Community Medical Center and the Matthew J. Morahan III Health Assessment Center for Athletes, both part of RWJBarnabas Health. The Morahan Center provides education, evaluation, and assessment of sports injury and sports-related cardiac and concussion screenings.

This annual event is hosted by Lester Glenn Subaru and the Point Pleasant Challenger Flag Football Team to help raise awareness and funds for the Point Pleasant Challenger Flag Football program.
The Point Pleasant Challenger Flag Football program was designed to allow children with various types of special needs the opportunity to participate in a team sport that promotes inclusion and helps those with special needs succeed.
This program is a nonprofit organization that believes that the football field is a place where more than just a game is played. It works to help bridge the difference and promote an understanding of people with special needs. Through the program, volunteers learn that people with special needs are not so different than themselves and develop an understanding of the challenges that their differently-abled counterparts face each day. The challenger athletes have the opportunity to play a team sport, experience a sense of comradery and make physical gains in terms of coordination and endurance, while also learning how to work as a member of a team.
We hope you and your families can join us at this amazing, FREE, event on 8/13/23 from 12 PM to 6 PM in Point Pleasant!

Buffering areas that are not compatible with development.
In 1997, the residents of Ocean County, overwhelmingly voted to establish the Ocean County Natural Lands Trust Program. The approval of a 1.2 cent dedicated tax provides the Board of Commissioners with the funds to acquire lands in Ocean County for conservation and farmland preservation.
With over 25,000 acres preserved as open space through NLTF there are many opportunities for the public to enjoy nature in Ocean County. Certain properties may be more appropriate than others for activities. Our properties are managed in partnership with the County Parks Department, and they are open to the public consistent with the Ocean County Parks and Natural Lands Trust Rules.
The Ocean County Board of Commissioners has announced that there is a program to safely dispose of old boat flares.
The program will take from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., May 6 at the Ocean County Training Center, 200 Volunteer Way, Waretown.
Flares will be accepted from Ocean County residents only. Flares from marinas and businesses will not be accepted. There will be 600 appointments available and residents can drop off a maximum of 10 flares. Program participants are asked to remain in their vehicles at all times.

Litter turns up everywhere – in our parks, on our shorelines, and in the water. Blown by the wind on trash day, tossed out car windows, intentionally dumped – however it gets there, it’s an eyesore and harmful to the environment.
The Barnegat Bay Blitz is an annual watershed-wide cleanup that brings together hundreds of volunteers with one goal in mind – keeping our land and water clean by removing litter from neighborhoods throughout Ocean County.
This year’s Blitz cleanups are happening during Earth Week from April 15th to April 22nd. Get outside and make a difference for a healthy watershed by volunteering for a local cleanup. Sometimes the best way to remove trash in the water is by boat, so if you enjoy getting out on the water, consider volunteering for one of the cleanups by kayak or canoe.
Visit our Blitz page for information about volunteering for a cleanup during Earth Week. Email questions about the Blitz to Karen Walzer at firstname.lastname@example.org.
