NEWBURGH - In the interest of getting children focused on healthier life styles and having their mentors be wellness partners, Big Brothers Big Sisters held a “Let’s Move it!” wellness event on Sunday, April 21, 2013, at the Greater Hudson Valley Family Health Center (GHVFHC) in Newburgh.
Thanks in large part to volunteer instructors, Nutritionist Lisa D’Alessandro, Personal Trainer Stacy Cameron, and Zumba instructor Suzanne Sheppard, the children learned about what healthy ingredients to look for in their foods, learned how to get the body moving through some Zumba pacers, and worked their muscles during a number of exercise routines.
Health screening of blood pressure was made available by GHVFHC staff.
