Stand Up For Fitness

On Saturday, October 12th, students, parents and friends from Marshall and Jefferson walked, jumped, danced, hooped and lunged their afternoon away at the 2nd Annual Family Fitness Day. 

Kicked off with introduction from Principal Samuels and Grierson then music from students of Mark Murphy Music. After a warm-up walk, families then joined Delon from D&I Fitness for a heart-up pumping cardio workout, Benita from Bennie Girl Health & Wellness Events for dancing and Zumba, the YMCA for running and throwing with dodgeball. The afternoon closed out with hula hooping fun with Step2Together. 

You can get a good idea of the fun from our slide show from the event:

Everyone also enjoyed face painting, a bouncy obstacle course, spinal assessments from South Orange Chiropractors, fresh fruit from Ashley Market, and tasty frozen yogurt from Love 'n Yogurt. A special thank you to all of our volunteers and our sponsors: Happy Feet of Millburn, Vanessa Pollock of the Keller Williams Midtown Direct office, and Watchung Pediatrics. We look forward to Family Fitness Day 2014!
