Jewish Family Service of Tidewater celebrated the “3 R’s” of Healthy Living—Running, Resting and Recycling—during the 8th Annual Week of Healthy Living.

The week started off with the annual Run, Roll or Stroll at Neptune’s Park on May 6. The cloudy day didn’t hamper the spirits of the many volunteers or the more than 500 participants in the 8K, 5K or 1 Mile Run/Walk. The team award was presented to “Team Tiger” of Hebrew Academy of Tidewater for fielding more than 149 team members.

On Tuesday, June 8, more than 150 people packed the Fleder Multi-Purpose Room at the Sandler Family Campus to hear Dr. Michael Breus, the Sleep Doctor. Breus presented numerous tips and tricks for getting the most efficient sleep and he fielded many questions from the audience.

The week concluded with a “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Replenish” event on Wednesday, May 9 and a Major Donor Reception on Thursday, May 10
