It was a great day out at Washington Square Park as the sport of fencing joined the fray at the first annual “Get Your Wellness On” event to help promote healthy living.
Kathleen Reckling (our quarterback for the day), NCAA Champion Daria Schneider, Team USA member Kurt Getz and fencer’s Adam Rodney, Melvin Rodriguez, Audra (from Ardsley High School) along with Jody Auslund helped teach about 100+ people to fence and exposed about 1,000+ people to the sport who were walking through! (Go Team!)
Get Your Wellness On – a Suicide Prevention and Awareness Fair with “activities to promote physical and mental health and the awareness of suicide prevention. Organized by Esmeralda Williamson-Noble, a writer-activist and mother of a suicide victim; with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
