For a third consecutive year, The Oritani Bank Charitable Foundation will be the primary sponsor of Westwood Recreation Department’s ForeverYoung program, a free fitness and activity program for Westwood’s 55+ community.
With the assistance of the Oritani Bank Charitable Foundation, the Westwood Recreation Department has been able to expand the number of free classes offered to the borough’s 55+ residents. Since its inception the program has added MELT class, focusing on reducing chronic pain and keeping seniors healthy, youthful and active for a lifetime, an outdoor yoga class in Veterans Park, as well as an open Gym Basketball Program to its regular offerings of Mahjong, Knitting, Watercolor Art, Cardio Fitness, Strength/Conditioning, Pickleball and Yoga.
The continued success of ForeverYoung is integral to the Borough’s mission of promoting “Aging in Place” by offering a consistent and well-rounded wellness program. The program regularly partners with Westwood For All Ages and The Mayor’s Wellness Program in offering wellness seminars led by local doctors, dieticans, chefs and other preventative care professionals.
