Mayor Gallagher's commitment to "total wellness" means providing innovative programs with outstanding partners that address the physical, emotional, and mental health care needs of all residents regardless of age.
Beginning with Hanover Township's youth athletes, the Mayor will also work out with the players and coaches of the Hanover Tigers on Wednesday, March 29 at 6 p.m. at The Tigers Turf at JVA Hall on South Jefferson Road in Whippany. Here the Mayor will join the team as they run through their football drills. On Sunday, May 21 at 9 a.m. you will find Mayor Gallagher with the Healthy Kids Running program at Whippany Park High School. After participating in warm-ups, the Mayor will hand out medals at the last race of the season. Come June, the Mayor will participate in dry-land workouts with the Bee Meadow Pool Swim Team.
Mayor Gallagher's workouts are not limited to young athletes. On Saturday, March 25, the Mayor will join Personal Fitness Instructor Ava Ventrone to lead Senior Circuit at 10 a.m. at the Hanover Township Community Center. Following the workout, there will be light refreshments and hand-outs from Atlantic Health System's Get Living Morris County program.
