RANDOLPH, NJ- The Canfield Avenue School hosted Community Wellness Day, a health and wellness expo organized by the Randolph Pain Relief and Wellness Center. The event included free healthy food samples, demonstrations, kids’ activities, and a variety of local businesses sharing information about health and wellness.

Through the vendor fees, the event raised $2,250, which was donated back to the school by Randolph Pain Relief and Wellness Center. These funds were earmarked for health and wellness activities for the staff.

The staff has taken full advantage of these funds in a variety of ways:

“We were able to start a yoga program for staff at CAS twice a month at a very reduced rate,” said Cindy Pyrzynski, President of the Mine Hill Teachers Association and a physical education teacher at the school. “Over 30% of the staff took advantage of that.”

“We took a group rock climbing at the Randolph Center and that cost was totally covered by the grant,” continued Pyrzynski, “last week close to 50% of our staff went bowling with a large amount of the cost covered by the grant.”

“Combining those events, close to 70% of our staff was able to benefit in some way from the grant. The grant allowed us an opportunity to expand what we could do together and involve others who wanted to do different events,” stated Pyrzynski.

Dr. David Simon, co-owner of the Randolph Pain Relief and Wellness Center was delighted to learn of the many ways in which the funding helped the school. “This is why we do what we do,” he said, “ to promote activities and programs that lead to better health and wellness.” Simon continued, “Canfield Avenue School did a great job utilizing the funds for activities that benefit large numbers of staff.”

Adam Zygmount, principal of Canfield Avenue School stated, “Events like these bring everyone together. Every day the staff is teaching in their separate classrooms. It’s a treat to get out, relax and enjoy each other’s company and some physical activity. The benefits are immeasurable.”

“It is a special experience at a school when administration, teachers, aides and administrative support staff can all participate in an activity together,” said Pyrzynski.

Randolph Pain Relief and Wellness Center has also provided a number of staff appreciation chair massage events, and meditation and nutrition classes at the school.

“We love getting into the schools and partnering with the teachers and administration. They all work so hard and we like to do what we can to keep them healthy,” said Simon.

The Randolph Pain Relief & Wellness Center provides injury rehab and drug-free pain relief tailored to your family, work and sports priorities using cryotherapy, physical therapy, chiropractic care, medical massage, acupuncture and chronic pain management.

The diner became a ...
