The JCC of Mid-Westchester and Camp Zeke, the first Jewish camp to celebrate healthy living, will co-host a Day of Wellness in cooperation with the Westchester Road Runners Club and New Rochelle Parks and Recreation on Sunday, October 20th.
The day will begin with a 5K run and family walk at 9:00 a.m. (registration begins at 8:00 a.m.). After the run, the day will feature a full schedule of programs in fitness, sports, cooking, nutrition, and a wellness-oriented comedy show.
The Day of Wellness will be a star studded event – champion boxers Dmitriy Salita and Yuri Foreman will work out with participants, pro-basketball player Tamir Goodman (the "Jewish Jordan") will be on hand to shoot hoops with families in the JCC gym, and Kosher by Design author and renowned chef, Susie Fishbein, will host a cooking lesson. In addition, the hilarious Bible Players will provide comic entertainment in the JCC's Bendheim Performing Arts Center.
Throughout the day, the public is invited to join the JCC of Mid-Westchester's expert instructors for complimentary spin, yoga, Zumba, and strength-training classes, and a fun family swim in the JCC's pool. Healthy food selections will be available at a farmers' market run by Adamah and Hazon.
Admission for this community-wide event is free, with two exceptions: Advanced registration for the 5K race is $15, and $20 on the event day, and registration for the Susie Fishbein event is also $15 in advance and $20 on the day of event.
