[ARCHIVED] East Orange re-opens renovated fitness center with equipment donated by the NJ 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 11 a.m. 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 weight lifting and exercise 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 fitness 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 East Orange Mayor Ted R. Green. “We will continue to encourage our residents to be active and incorporate exercise into their wellness routine.”
“The New Jersey Devils are proud to support the City of East Orange in the re-opening of a fitness center that has become a beacon for wellness opportunities in their community,” said Devils President Jake Reynolds. “Providing safe and accessible opportunities for physical fitness is paramount to maintaining a successful and healthy community. We look forward to seeing the residents of East Orange train like the Devils.”
Since 2015, the New Jersey Devils have been a committed community partner, providing game tickets, hockey equipment for East Orange parks, on-site clinics and more. Most recently in March 2019, former Devils goaltender Cory Schneider and his wife Jill 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 area youth.
