MORRISTOWN, NJ - Hundreds of students, parents and school staff members gathered at Alexander Hamilton school on Tuesday night to take part in their annual Family Fitness Night co-hosted by Hillcrest school. Participants rotated between different activity stations for a fun and energetic evening that included basketball, Zumba, cup stacking, aerobics and nutrition education.
"One of the main goals of the evening is to instill the importance of a healthy lifestyle, in terms of both body and mind, and to reinforce for students that developing these good habits are all the more meaningful when families work on them together," explained one of the organizers of the event.
The stations were sponsored by such local businesses as Zumba Fitness, ShopRite, Zufall Health and Guerrilla Fitness. The Education Association of Morris was also on hand distributing LCD bike reflectors, pens and healthy snacks to attendees.
