Mayor's Wellness Tip Of The Week - Squeeze In Mini-Workouts
Does a jam-packed schedule leave you no time for exercise? Don’t worry, you can get a workout in without quitting your day job. Instead of trying to find a large block of time to exercise, break down your daily workouts into 10-minute mini sessions so they're easier to squeeze into your day. Whenever you have a few spare minutes, take a brisk walk around the block, do a set of pushups or perform a quick series of yoga stretches. By the end of the day, those short 10-minute breaks can add up to a whole hour of exercise! You can learn more about the Mayor's Wellness Campaign and take the pledge to join by clicking HERE.

Cherry Hill Students Participate In S.T.A.R. Games
About 180 students in Grades K-12 from across the Cherry Hill School District gathered at the Jonas Morris Stadium at Cherry Hill West on Friday May 18th for the S.T.A.R. Games (Specially Talented Athletes Recognized). This lively event celebrated the talents of students with special needs and provided them with the opportunity to compete at a high level. You can read more about the event in a story by the Cherry Hill Sun by clicking HERE. You can see a video about the recent S.T.A.R. Games by clicking HERE.

Cherry Hill Police Remind Residents To Lock It Or Lose It
The Cherry Hill Police Department reminds you to lock your vehicle and remove ALL valuables from it. When you leave your vehicle unlocked (even in your driveway) you are at a higher risk of being the victim of theft. Please remove all jewelry, wallets, purses, electronics, change, or anything of value regardless of how small. Please report any incidents of theft to the police immediately at 856-665-1200.

Spreading The Message Of Anti-bullying To Students
John Halligan reached out to the senior and junior classes at Cherry Hill High School East in a poignant assembly regarding a consequence of unrelenting bullying: suicide. In 2003, Mr. Halligan’s son Ryan committed suicide after falling into a period of depression as a result of persistent ridicule both at school and online. At night, Mr. Halligan spoke with parents on bullying, cyber bullying and teen depression at the Cherry Hill Public Library. You can read more by clicking HERE.

Weekly Energy Tip: If you stand too close, your wallet might get burned

If you stand too close, your wallet might get burned. Especially with your A/C beginning to work overtime for the summer, make sure you keep the thermostat clear of heat. Don’t position heat-producing devices such as lamps or TVs close to your thermostat. Heat from these devices could cause the thermostat to read a temperature higher than the true room temperature. This can lead to excessive cooling and wasted energy! For more information or to take the It's In Our Power Pledge to increase your energy efficiency, please visit: http://www.ourpowercherryhill.org/ or contact Nancy Axelrod, Energy Outreach Coordinator at 856-432-8741 or naxelrod@chtownship.com.
