Luckily, Collingswood has made it easy and fun by rounding up more than 70 ways for you to be well in just one week. Collingswood is offering a week's worth of fitness and whole health events from April 6 to April 11, 2020. All events are $5 or less and many are free.

“You could wake up every day of Wellness Week and try something new all day long,” said Collingswood Mayor James Maley. “It’s brings together everything. Doctors, experts, fitness – there’s something for everyone.”

Each weekday during wellness week a variety of classes and events are scheduled for free or minimal cost. Offerings range from screenings and wellness checks, group activities like community biking, fitness classes and seminars from doctors and experts. Each weeknight will also have a “featured event” at the Community Center at 6:30 p.m. – a free, community style class on a broad range of topics.
