Stone Harbor – Single-digit temperatures did not deter more than eighty Stone Harbor Borough employees and residents from gathering for the official launch of the 2015 Stone Harbor Mayors Wellness Campaign (MWC) on Wednesday, February 18th at the Stone Harbor Recreation Center.
The Borough of Stone Harbor is joining in a new effort to help the state’s communities get on the path to active living and healthier lifestyles. The town has developed a free 10-week wellness program for their community that will run from February 18 through May 6, 2015. Ninety-three registrants have joined the program to date. Mayor Suzanne Walters and Robin Stoloff, local television health reporter and radio host, kicked-off the program on Wednesday and received a warm reception from the attendees. Robin was a Health Reporter for NBC 40 for almost 30 years. Her award-winning Health Update features were the longest-running medical series in New Jersey which she created and hosted. “It was apropos for Robin to be our kick-off speaker,” said Judy Davies-Dunhour, Stone Harbor Council Member that first initiated Stone Harbor and Avalon’s, Battle of the Bulge, seventeen years ago. “Robin also spoke at our opening event in January of 1998 with Avalon. “Her experience, enthusiasm and passion to empower others with the knowledge to help them live a longer, healthier life, proved Robin to be the perfect fit.”
To get participants started on the right track, Robin highlighted her top-ten steps to a healthy living. With the closing of NBC 40, Robin is embarking on a new career at Townsquare Media as radio host of her new program, Living Well with Robin Stoloff, Sundays from 9-11am on Lite Rock 96.9 WFPG FM. Robin is so excited to continue her passion – to connect you with local medical experts and bring you important health information to help you live a better, healthier life. She will also be doing her Health Update features on all five Townsquare Media stations.
