FORT LEE, N.J. -- Fort Lee was recently recognized as a community with a commitment to health and wellness by the New Jersey Health Care Quality Institute.

Fort Lee’s annual health fair attracted more than 2,000 participants and includes 70 vendors as well as a vaccination program, obesity prevention and exercise events.

To make it easier for residents’ to make healthier choices, Fort Lee hosts a weekly farmer’s market, recently opened three new public parks, started a community garden, and opened a community ice skating rink.

“We pledge that the health and fitness of our residents will continue to be a high priority with many more improvements to come in the future,”  Mayor Mark Sokolich said in a statement.

The Mayors Wellness Campaign (MWC) began in 2006 in partnership with the NJ State League of Municipalities to leverage local leadership to prioritize health and wellness in communities statewide. Today, MWC has grown to nearly 380 municipalities—two-thirds of the state’s 565 towns.
