BRADLEY BEACH — About 75 residents joined Mayor Larry Fox for a Wellness Stroll, beginning on the Fifth Avenue gazebo at 6:30 p.m. on Sunday. 

The stroll is a part of the broader Mayors Wellness Marketing campaign [MWC] Annual Pledge of Participation. The Borough Council joined the marketing campaign within the fall of 2021, to decide to enhancing the well being and wellness of all Bradley Seashore residents. 

“We started this mayor’s wellness campaign last year. It’s affiliated with the New Jersey Quality Health Institute. There are over 400 communities in the state that have signed on for this,” stated Mayor Fox.

Regardless of having a decrease variety of contributors because the earlier Wellness Stroll earlier this summer season, Mayor Fox sees it as a hit. 

“We were a little bit less than what we’d been getting in previous walks like the one in June, where we get about a hundred-plus people at each event. Yesterday was probably more like 75. But we have a reasonably sized and active Jewish community in town, and they had requested that we try not to do a Saturday once or twice a year,” stated Mayor Fox.

“So we took their suggestion, and the congregation joined us last night. So, the good news is we got a different group of people. But we were down a little bit volume and, and I can understand that on a Sunday, you know, towards the end of the summer, people are doing a lot of different things with their families and everything else,” added Mayor Fox 

The Wellness Stroll serves a number of functions, which Mayor Fox stated included train consciousness, psychological well being help and neighborhood bonding. 

“We want to get people out, get them moving and exercising. We view it as a social kind of a thing, too, which is a key component of your mental health. So we encourage people to walk with people they don’t know, learn something about them and their neighbors, and it seems to work pretty well. The other accomplishment we are looking for is having some kind of a community bonding, where people hang around before and after and talk and get to know the people in an informal setting,” stated Mayor Fox.
