Mayor’s Wellness Campaign offers fun, affordable activities for all
With vacations behind us, it’s time to get back to the grind – and in the midst of our busy lives, it’s easy to overlook what’s really important, particularly when it comes to our health. To help us all stay on track through in the next few months, there are a number of engaging and informational events – many of which are free – planned through the Mayor’s Wellness Campaign. A full rundown of upcoming events can be found on the Mayor’s Wellness page online. Highlights include:

  • Healthy cooking workshops – Beginning Tuesday, Sept. 11, the Township will partner with Wegmans and ShopRite to offer a series of free healthy-cooking classes. Wegmans’ classes will begin at 6:30 p.m. Sept. 11 at the Croft Farm Arts Center and continue through the fall. ShopRite will offer monthly classes at their Marlton location (on Route 70), starting with a gluten-free workshop at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 20. Space is limited, but seats are still available. To register, email your name and address to MWC@chtownship.com. GOTR photo.jpg
  • Girls on the Run – On Sept. 23, the Katz JCC will kick off this exciting new program aimed at girls 8 to 11. Through a combination of dialogue and running activities, the 10-week program encourages friendship while teaching the importance of things like emotional health, nutrition, the importance of rest and positive attitudes, and personal values.  Sessions begin Sept. 23 and are held Sunday afternoons and Thursday evenings at the Katz JCC, 1301 Springdale Road. Registration ends Sept. 19; the cost is $100 for JCC members and $140 for non-members. For more information, click here.
  • Walks with the Mayor – from 8 to 9 a.m. on Sept. 19, members of the public are invited to take the 2-mile walk around the Cherry Hill Mall’s interior with me. The walks are scheduled on the third Wednesday of every month. While you’re there, enjoy healthy refreshments, enter to win prizes, and take our pledge to get healthy and stay active!

Mayor's Wellness: Stay healthy during the back-to-school season
Here are some helpful hints to keep children happy and healthy as they return to school.

  • Make sure they get plenty of rest and go to bed early to be ready for the school day.
  • Establish a before- and after-school routine.
  • Pack healthy snacks and lunches.
  • Children should carry no more than 25 percent of their weight in a backpack, which should be cinched against their body so it doesn’t swing.
  • Encourage involvement in sports, clubs, after-school activities and volunteer opportunities. Contribution and participation help kids feel like they belong.

It’s in Our Power: Recycle your old refrigerator or freezer today
You’d be amazed at what your refrigerator can save! The New Jersey Clean Energy Program’s refrigerator/freezer recycling program promotes responsible recycling of these appliances and offers a $50 incentive. Approximately 95 percent of each appliance is recycled. Consider these important facts:

    • On average, a new refrigerator or freezer consumes 1,000 fewer kWh annually than one manufactured before 1990.
    • Recycling  20,000 of these older appliances results in energy savings equal to the amount of power used in approximately 1,400 homes, or removing 40,000 cars from the road for one year.

    Find out how much your refrigerator or freezer costs to operate by clicking here. Most people can save up to $150 per year on your energy costs! Recycling old appliances is easy. To arrange for a free pickup, call (877) 270-3520 or schedule a pickup online.
