SEVENTY NEW JERSEY MUNICIPALITIES SUPPORT THE

“MAYORS WELLNESS CAMPAIGN” TO PROMOTE ACTIVE LIVING AND HEALTHY LIFESTYLES IN THEIR COMMUNITIES

Mayors Wellness Campaign Reaches Goal Ahead of Schedule

Trenton – Seventy of New Jersey’s municipalities have taken action to support the “Mayors Wellness Campaign,” an innovative partnership designed to equip mayors and other key leaders with the tools to develop and implement active-living initiatives in their communities.

“The campaign’s goal of signing up 10 percent (57) of New Jersey’s municipalities by the end of its first year of operation has already been reached,” said Ann McDonald, Project Manager for the MWC.  The MWC kicked off its campaign at the New Jersey State League of Municipalities annual conference in Atlantic City last November.

“We are already working to assist mayors and local leaders implement programs that will help their citizens become more active and healthy,” said McDonald.  “I’m incredibly excited about the interest generated by our new program and look forward to signing up even more municipalities at this November’s League conference.”

The MWC supports mayors as champions of community health.  The goal is to increase opportunities for New Jersey residents to participate in daily physical activity with a long-term goal of reducing health care costs secondary to obesity.  Through public-private partnerships, the MWC provides structure and resources for healthy community initiatives.  By encouraging mayors to play a leadership role in supporting local opportunities for active, healthy lifestyles, the intent of the MWC is to improve health and make New Jersey a national leader in community-based health interventions.

This spring, each of the 566 mayors in New Jersey’s municipalities were mailed the MWC “Toolbox,” a manual designed to guide them through the implementation of wellness programs in their communities.  Broken down into four major sections – Youth in Motion; Employees in Motion; Seniors in Motion; and Communities in Motion – the Toolbox outlines programs that can be directly used in every community in New Jersey.  The Toolbox can also be found on the MWC website.

The 70 municipalities currently supporting the MWC are: Alpine; Barrington; Bellmawr; Berkeley; Bernards; Bloomingdale; Boonton; Branchburg; Clifton; Denville; East Windsor; Eastampton; Elmer; Franklin (Pittstown); Frenchtown; Guttenberg; Hackettstown; Hampton (Newton); Hamilton (Mercer County); Hawthorne; Hightstown; Hillsborough; Hoboken; Hope; Hopewell Borough; Jefferson; Keyport; Kinnelon; Lebanon Borough; Little Ferry; Long Beach; Long Branch; Madison; Manchester; Marlboro; Millburn; Montgomery; Morris; National Park; North Bergen; Ocean (Waretown); Ocean (Oakhurst); Old Tappan; Paulsboro; Peapack-Gladstone; Pitman; Pompton Lakes; River Edge; River Vale; Rochelle Park; Rockaway; Roseland; Roselle Park; Runnemede; Saddle Brook; Salem; Somerville; South Plainfield; South Toms River; Spring Lake Heights; Summit; Sussex; Totowa; Washington (Long Valley); Watchung; Waterford; Wayne; West Deptford; Wildwood Crest; and Willingboro.

The MWC is an initiative of the New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute (www.njhcqi.org) in partnership with the New Jersey State League of Municipalities (www.njslom.org). Major funding has been provided by Aetna and BeneCard.  Additional funding has been provided by the New Jersey Department of Transportation, St. Francis Hospital, Robert Wood Johnson Hospital-Hamilton, Johnson & Johnson and Bayville Holdings, LLC.  The Voorhees Transportation Center at Rutgers University, the Regional Plan Association and the Ramapo College Nursing Program were instrumental in the research and development of the MWC.
