Shaping Red Bank – Springing Into Action

We had an exciting meeting with the Red Bank Mayors Wellness Challenge on March 13th. Many ideas were shared and explored during the meeting. The Mayors Wellness Challenge is planning Fitness in the Park program on Wednesday, April 23rd, from 6:00 pm until 7:00pm at the Riverside Garden Park. This will be the first MWC scheduled this year by Red Bank Mayor Pasquale Menna. We discussed the Shaping Red Bank project and talked about coordination with the Recreation Department. We will be reaching out to the Red Bank Engineering Department to discuss enhancing their maps of the area parks.
A variety of fitness programs that are offered by the Red Bank Recreation Department are a perfect fit for the Mayors Wellness Challenge. We discussed a jazzercise/line dancing component as an idea for the Spring/Summer concert series. At a concert at Great Adventure, last Summer, the concert host had the DJ play 10 minutes of line dancing so that concert participants could get some exercise before the concert began. Pilgrim Baptist Church is working on a fitness program for their congregation. The goal is to get members to live healthier, active lives. We are planning for a Health Fair this Spring and are looking forward to more activities involving the Recreation Department and one of the area churches.
