Atlantic Beach begins installing beach mats

For many, the beach is a vacation spot and place to relax -- but for those with trouble walking, sand can be an obstacle, so one town started installing beach mats Tuesday.

Ninety-six feet of mat is being installed on the east side of Davis' Beachwear in Atlantic Beach.

The town of Atlantic Beach will maintain the mats once installed.

Realty World First Coast Realty has been holding a fundraiser called 'dogs for a cause' to raise money for the mats.

Their end goal is to raise $6,000 to buy over 200 feet of beach access mats.

The next event will take place at 100 Cedar street in Beaufort, NC on Friday, July 15 at 11:30 a.m.
