WILDWOOD CREST – More than 100 Borough of Wildwood Crest residents, visitors, employees and elected officials participated in the borough’s “Wellness Weekend” activities on Friday and Saturday, April 13-14.

Wellness Weekend was created as an introduction to the Wildwood Crest Mayor’s Wellness Campaign.

The event began Friday evening with a basketball game among borough employees at the Crest Pier Recreation Center. The Wildwood Crest Police Department team beat a team made up of recreation, public works and ambulance corps employees by one point in a contest that went down to the wire.

On Saturday morning, Mayor Don Cabrera, commissioners Joyce Gould and David Thompson and members of the borough’s newly-created nine-member Wellness Committee hosted a walk/fun run along the Wildwood Crest bike path. Approximately 75 people took part in the walk/fun run, which began at Scoop Taylor Park and traveled south to Rambler Road and back, with a stop at Centennial Park for a group photo.

Free long-sleeve T-shirts were distributed to all participants. Refreshments were served at the Crest Pier Recreation Center following the walk/fun run.

“It was a really fun weekend of events for everyone,” said Cabrera. “Wellness Weekend was a great way to kick off our Mayor’s Wellness Campaign. We look forward to creating many more programs, activities and initiatives that will help promote health and wellness in our community.”
