New Jersey Partnership for Healthy Kids (NJPHK) is a statewide program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) whose primary goal is to convene, connect and empower community partnerships across the state to implement environment and policy changing strategies that prevent childhood obesity. Community coalitions in Trenton, Camden, Newark, New Brunswick, and Vineland are leading these efforts.
NJPHK’s Building Healthy Communities Conference offered nourishment for the mind and spirit; it also had a great deal of heart, exemplified by NJPHK’s Healthy Kids Champions. These first-ever awards were given to six individuals to recognize their commitment and hard work in driving environmental and policy changes and making their respective communities healthier places to live, learn and play.
On October 6, 2013, New Brunswick had its first ever Ciclovia. The City closed down the streets to automobiles and opened them to pedestrians and cyclist as an exciting community-wide event that supports active lifestyles to improve health and promote wellness, celebrate community, and galvanize our City's diverse organizations, institutions and businesses around a shared vision.
