RUNNING WITH THE DEVILS FAMILY FUN RUN

We did our very first 5K Run and Fun Walk yesterday and it was such a blast... it definitely won't be the last. We had such an amazing time, not just for a good cause but also enjoying the outdoors on such a nice fall morning with my family. I am happy to have partnered with RWJ Barnabas and NJ Mom for this fun opportunity and to bring awareness to all the amazing things RWJBarnabas and New Jersey Devils is providing their patients with building stronger communities by promoting healthy, active lifestyles and world-class healthcare.
 
 
This 5k was a charitable race held at Essex County’s South Mountain Reservation Complex to Benefit RWJBH’s Statewide Network of Facilities. The views were more than stunning... we actually were a little behind because we had to stop and take it nature's beauty and take photos and video. The kids LOVED running and simply looking at all the beautiful trees and waterfall. Now I can't wait for spring to come fishing and walking. 

It was a fun family morning - we enjoyed interactive games, music, face painting and a fun Photo Booth! Did you catch it on my stories yesterday? I also love that Wellness on Wheels (WOW) was on site. WOW is RWJBarnabas Health’s recently introduced mobile education center. We checked out the 35-foot vehicle, it even had a full kitchen! They were handing out some delicious soups! So perfect after our walk/run! The WOW mobile unit will tour many communities throughout the state, reinforcing the value of good nutrition, while providing a unique opportunity to educate families beyond traditional methods to help connect food, behavior and health.

 
Thank you so much to RWJBarnabas and New Jersey Devils for a fun morning! We also loved visiting the Turtleback Zoo after the walk. What a way to end our morning:) I can't wait for another 5k with the fam, I am so glad the kids enjoyed it.
