Registration is now open for the Middlesex County Department of Community Services, Office of Aging and Disabled Services’ Senior Health and Fitness Walk, scheduled to take place on Wednesday, Sept. 13.
Middlesex County’s Roosevelt Park in Edison will once again host the walk, held from 10 a.m. to
1 p.m. Registration is free, but required. Contact your local Senior Center to register before the deadline, which is Sept. 2.
“The Walk is an event our senior residents look forward to each year,” said Freeholder Blanquita B. Valenti, Chair of the County’s Community Services Committee. “I encourage all eligible residents to register now and take advantage of the health screenings and a chance to walk in beautiful Roosevelt Park.”
Free health screenings and wellness information will be available at the event. Boxed lunches and entertainment will follow the walk. There also will be raffles and special T-shirts for walkers.
Freeholder Director Ronald G. Rios added: “The Board of Chosen Freeholders is dedicated to creating programs that enable all residents to be active and stay healthy. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is especially important as we grow older, and this event has brought many of our residents together in the spirit of good health and good times.”
Registration and other amenities are free. Information on health and wellness, as well as the free screenings, are intended to give all participants a better idea of how to improve their habits and maintain their current healthy lifestyle.
