'Rockaway Walks' Comes To An End
James Sanders Jr. is fit for his election campaign as he started his Saturday morning exercising to celebrate the achievements of Rockaway residents who over the last four months dedicated their summer to improve their flexibility, strength, endurance, fitness and health.
In addition, Councilman Sanders not only took the time to sweat and work out. He acknowledged everybody who participated in the "Rockaway Walks" program with citations for their dedication.
This year Modell's Sporting Goods on Rockaway Turnpike distributed $25 gift certificates in support of the goals of the dedicated participants with 80-100 percent attendance. Also stop by The Wave office at 88-08 Rockaway Beach Boulevard to get a 10 percent discount coupon on multiple purchases through October 8 at Modell's.
Steven McCartney, the fitness coordinator over the last three years, says, "Councilman Sanders really opened the door for residents in Rockaway to work on healthy lifestyle goals and this marked a new era with the launch of Rockaway Walks Fitness Column in The Wave, and on behalf of everyone who came out this summer and our sponsors, I thank him for his vision and support."
