East Orange re-opens renovated fitness center with nearly $100,000 of equipment donated by the New Jersey Devils
East Orange, NJ, October 20, 2020: The City of East Orange will celebrate the re-opening of its newly-refurbished Pride Power Fitness Center with a Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony on Wednesday, October 21, 2020 at 11am at the Fellowship Civic Center, 1 Fellowship Circle, East Orange, NJ.
The fitness center recently received a major overhaul through a collaboration between the Department of Recreation & Cultural Affairs and a donation of nearly $100,000 worth of equipment from the New Jersey Devils.
The center, which is open to East Orange residents for an annual fee of $25, was upgraded earlier this year with the addition of the 14 pieces of equipment, which include a leg press, bench press, elliptical machines, treadmills, free weights and more.
“Thank you to the New Jersey Devils for your generous donation and ongoing partnership with the City of East Orange. Anyone who knows me knows that I am committed to exercise not just for the physical benefits, but for the overall impact it has on your mind and spirit,” said Mayor Ted R. Green. “We will continue to encourage our residents to be active and incorporate exercise into their wellness routine.”
Since 2015, the New Jersey Devils have been a committed community partner, providing event sponsorships, game tickets, hockey equipment for East Orange parks, and on-site clinics. Most recently, Cory and Jill Schneider brought their non-profit organization Cory’s Keepers to East Orange’s Cicely Tyson Community School of Performing and Fine Arts for an evening of street hockey, hockey clinics and games with over 75 participating youth.
