Cherry Hill residents can take the pledge and get healthy

December 21, 2012 by  

Currently, the city of Cherry Hill is holding a Mayor’s Wellness Campaign aimed at improving the health and wellness of the city’s residents. Those who take the pledge promise to exercise at least three times a week, to eat more fruits and vegetables, to drink more water, to eat less junk food, and to have their doctor check things such as blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

In order to help residents, several venues throughout Cherry Hill will be offering cooking classes, education seminars, and other community activities in order to assist people in sticking to their pledge. A couple of activities taking place early in the New Year include a 10-week Qi Gong Workshop offered by Cherry Hill Health and Racquet. The workshops begin on January 14 between 11:00 am and 12:00 pm and costs $100 for all 10. For more information, call 856-429-1388.

Later in January, the Wellness Cooking Class will be offering a Low Carb Cooking class at Shop Rite in Marlton on January 17 from 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm. Admission is free for Cherry Hill residents.

One ongoing event taking place during the Mayor’s Wellness Campaign is a monthly Walk with the Mayor. It takes place on the third Wednesday of each month, so the next one will take place on January 16 at Cherry Hill Mall from 8:00 am – 9:00 am. For more information, call 856-488-7878.

It is likely that organizers of the campaign are working with Cherry Hill printing companies to let the community know about each upcoming event.
