Stepping Toward a Healthier Sussex County

Sussex County YMCA is not in it alone. We are working with many municipalities throughout the county as well as Newton Medical Center, a division of Atlantic Health, the Sussex County Chamber of Commerce and Sussex County Community College. With such support from around the County the Y is really looking forward to sharing the outcome from the ShapingNJ initiative.

Sussex County Walks

Sussex County covers 536 square miles and the YMCA has facilities in only one town. Our PaulTrailMappartners will promote the many places to walk safely throughout the county by creating promotional materials and launching Sussex County Walks. We will be highlighting all of the many walking paths available in our beautiful county.  In addition, we plan to enhance the walking paths in Hardyston Township with exercise stops. Through these efforts, the YMCA will expand the opportunities for residents of Sussex County to participate in physical activity.

Healthy Body & Healthy Heart

The Sussex County Board of Agriculture will helped to recruit Willow Brook Farm participate in the healthy eating GEF-CSA-80initiative. Willow Brook Farm has taken on an active role by creating helpful recipes for the fresh produce available to the participating families. Our families will not only feel the benefits of the produce they receive but also learn how to use the products most effectively.  Hello Spring!  So begins the field prep and planting!!
