This fall, The Gateway Family YMCA branches in Elizabeth, Rahway and Union will celebrate a family wellness event, Family Fun & Fitness Day. Family Fun & Fitness Day is designed with activities to engage both children and their parents, and is open to all ages.

A Family Fun & Fitness Day event is scheduled for October 5, 2019, at the Rahway Branch, 1564 Irving Street, Rahway.

The Gateway Family YMCA branches will be hosting events that are open to the community, including free family group exercise programs, indoor playstreets, healthy snacks, nutrition information, community vendors and fun games.

“Providing a safe and positive environment for the community, where families come together in a healthy environment, sharing experiences and creating memories is what we do here at the Y,” stated Krystal R. Canady, CEO. The Gateway Family YMCA offers family programs and events to support healthy family living in the communities throughout Eastern Union County and Northern Middlesex County, including Early Learning Readiness (ELR) a school-readiness community program for preschoolers and their caregivers.

“Serving families has always been at the heart of the Y. We have a fundamental desire to provide opportunities for every family to build stronger bonds, achieve greater work/life balance, become more engaged with their communities, and have fun,” stated Melynda A. Mileski, EVP/COO.
