Crooked Hammock Brewery
36707 Crooked Hammock Way
Lewes, DE US 19958

Come for the race, stay for the celebration!

Bring your family and friends to the Crooked Hammock Brewery for a fun-filled family day. The 5K course is followed by an awesome post-race party with music, family friendly activities, food and brews. Join us for this extraordinary event in support of the Margaret H. Rollins Child Development Center at the Children’s Beach House in memory of Ashley Nicole Furio.

Not much of a runner? No problem!

Instead of registering to run in the Ashley Furio 5K, you could sign up for the Crooked Crawl and get all of the same race-day fun without actually doing the running part! You’ll get your long-sleeve race shirt, be in the big group photo with all the other Crawlers, then just step over the finish line and head straight to the bar to enjoy the food, music and brews, and all of the fun things there are to do at the Crooked Hammock! Why RUN when you could CRAWL!

You can help raise funds!

Runners, Crooked Crawlers, or ANYONE has the option of creating a fundraising campaign to help raise additional funds for the Ashley Nicole Furio fund to support the Child Development Center at Children’s Beach House!

The teachers and staff are amazing, experienced, and loving with the children. They are always finding fun and exciting activities for them to do. The teachers have also been so helpful with her speech delay. The additional support has tremendously improved her articulation and phonological development.  I couldn’t ask for a better experience.

The Dunne Family

Children’s Beach House has provided a wonderful introduction to school for our son. He has benefited immensely from the friendships and learning environment there. The school goes above and beyond to provide enjoyable experiences for their students…


The teachers know how to make learning fun and make the material stick. My daughter’s letter and number recognition has drastically improved since she began attending the CBH.


They have taught my son so much. Even on weekends, my son wakes up asking if he has school that day. They are extremely patient and understanding of every child’s needs and have always been available to discuss all concerns or questions. I am so fortunate to have found this amazing Childcare center/pre-school for my son…


What a warm, friendly environment to surround her with daily! All the staff is positive and professional. The communication is timely and proactive. Above all else, the progress and development that I see Mackenzie make including speech improvements b/c of onsite specialists, social/emotional learning, and the leadership, she’s blossoming into a confident, respectful and delightful preschooler.


The teachers are amazing and very easy to communicate with. The kids get a lot of outside time and during the summer they even get to swim in the water and play in the sand! We never have to worry, during the day when they are there, as we know they are being well cared for.


My daughter loves attending the M.H. Rollins Child Development Center! They’re so welcoming to her energetic and active personality. She loves that she gets outside everyday and the curriculum they use makes her think she’s playing all day.



The work of Children’s Beach House would not be possible without the support of our donors. Every day, their kindness and generosity are felt by children and families across the state of Delaware.  Every day, their donations help to make lasting change in children’s lives. We hope you will join them in supporting our work.
