Health Fair this Sunday


From 1pm to 4pm – Sunday, November 1st, at the Multi-Service Center at 124 Grand Street:


Second Hoboken Health Fair

This will be the second in a series of monthly health fairs geared toward promoting healthy eating and exercise.

The event, which will follow up on the “Mitzvah Day” kickoff activity co-sponsored by the United Synagogue of Hoboken and the Hoboken Housing Authority on Sept. 13, will feature flu shots made available
to Housing Authority residents as well as more health screenings, nutritional information and food samples, and various sports activities.

Hudson Perinatal Consortium will participate in the event, providing maternal and child health information, breast-cancer awareness and screening and various giveaways for children.

Bikes to be given away

The exercise activities will include another round of bike rides and bike-safety tips. At last month’s event, 10 bikes were given away as prizes to children in the Housing Authority. The hope is to give away at least three more this time around, but bike donations are needed to make that happen. Anyone with any bicycles they can donate should contact Housing Authority Commissioner Jake Stuiver at

There will also be an obstacle course, another karate class and other indoor sports activities, and plans are under way to have some health-oriented cooking contests. Commissioner Stuiver will also DJ the
event. For more information contact: Jake Stuiver at 201-978-8977
