Health and Fitness Club and Members from the Department of Health and Physical Education Volunteer at Fall Festival

On Saturday, September 22, the Health and Fitness Club and members of the Department of Health and Physical Education volunteered at the Fall Festival at local Public School 17. Saint Peter’s University students promoted mindfulness by running a series of events that each elementary student completed as part of the day’s health awareness initiative. Any student who is interested in participating in future community service events should contact Jay Garrels, Ph.D., assistant professor and chair of the department of health and physical education, at jgarrels@saintpeters.edu.
