On August 1st, 2015 the final Brendan Borek Surf Memorial will take place. We want you to be here! Also on the schedule for that night is a revival of Avalon's Legendary Party "The Beef N' Beer."

We are making this announcement because we realize that many of you have obligations to fulfill and arrangements to make. This will allow everyone a sufficient amount of time for planning your trip to the Jersey Shore next August. We look forward to seeing all our friends, old and new, on the 30th Street Beach, Avalon, NJ for the "25th Brendan."

Brendan's Fund will continue to fulfill its mission of supporting children with cancer. The encouragement we have received over the years from our loyal friends has been exceptional and deeply appreciated.

We are looking forward to sharing memories and connecting with old friends.

Follow our Facebook Page "The Brendan Borek High Tides Memorial Fund" and our Website for more details on upcoming events. Contact us at: 609-967-0100 or bren@brendansfund.org.


Brendan Borek loved life, and life it seemed, loved Brendan. An avid surfer, gifted artist, and an agile soccer player, his teenage years mirrored life at its fullest.

Diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma (cancer of the bone) at 16, he vied against death with courage and dignity until the disease claimed him in December 1991.

Because Brendan touched the
hearts of many, the Brendan Borek High Tides Memorial Fund, Inc. (Brendan’s Fund) was established in 1992 by his family and friends. Visit the About Us section to find out more.
