Washington Adventist University Receives Million Dollar Gift for New Health Professions, Science and Wellness Center


Takoma Park, Md. (PRWEB) January 22, 2015

Plans for a new Washington Adventist University (WAU) Health Professions, Science and Wellness Center in Takoma Park, Md. were advanced recently when health care executive and board member Bruce Boyer presented a $ 1 million check for the project at a meeting of the WAU Board of Trustees.

“This generous gift will go a long way toward making the vision for a new Health Professions, Science and Wellness Center a reality,” said WAU President Weymouth Spence, Ed.D., R.T. “The center will offer exciting and endless possibilities for this university as we find new ways to enhance the education of our students in the health and science professions, promote healthy living, and improve community wellness.”

The center will be built as a $ 10.3 million renovation and addition to the existing Health Professions Building on campus. When completed, the 50,000-square-foot center will accommodate WAU’s health professions and science programs, as well as community programs to enhance wellness. It will provide opportunities for the university to partner with the city and county in offering healthy cooking and exercise classes, among other wellness activities. The architect for the project is Hord, Coplan and Macht.

Boyer, who is president and chairman of Sloan Management, Inc. and Premier HealthCare, Inc., has a unique perspective on Washington Adventist University. He spent time on campus as a child in the 1950s when his parents attended the university, then known as Washington Missionary College; in the 1960s when he was a psychology major at the school, then known as Columbia Union College; and in the 1970s, when he joined the university’s board of trustees, then known as the Columbia Union College Board of Trustees.

In addition to Boyer’s recent gift, the new center is being funded through the university’s annual Visionaries Gala, along with support from the state of Maryland through a $ 4 million matching grant from the Governor’s Office. The grant application is being completed and funding approval is expected this year.

Individuals interested in contributing to the new facility are encouraged to email alumni(at)wau(dot)edu or call 301-891-4151. Online donations can be made at http://www.wau.edu/alumni/give-to-wau .

Washington Township Fit Body Boot Camps Grand Opening of Fitness Boot Camp to Benefit Susan G. Komen Foundation


Washington Township, NJ (PRWEB) November 07, 2014

Washington Township Fit Body Boot Camp will be hosting its Grand Opening event in Turnersville, NJ on November 8, 2014 from 11-2 p.m. The owner of the fitness boot camp is Mel Parker Jr., also the owner of Perfect 4 You Personal Training. He’s excited about the event, which will benefit breast cancer research.

The new location is the first Fit Body Boot Camp in southern New Jersey, offering to local residents a totally exclusive experience that cannot be matched anywhere else in the region. Fit Body Boot Camp is an indoor fitness boot camp specializing in cutting edge training techniques that shed fat while building muscle.

“Fit Body Boot Camp uses its Unstoppable Fitness Formula Workouts to provide an extra push to stay motivated under the supervision of the best fitness instructors, while achieving maximum results and developing a sense of camaraderie with all Fit Body Boot Campers,” says Parker.

During the Grand Opening, there will be free fitness assessments, raffle prizes from local businesses, and some big giveaways from Fit Body Boot Camp. Visitors can also participate in a 20 minute mini-boot camp class for just $ 5. The proceeds will go to the Susan G. Komen Foundation to fund breast cancer research.

A purchase to participate in the mini boot camp, or making any other donation, automatically enters participants to win big in the raffle. Washington Township Fit Body Boot Camp will also raffle off one free month of boot camp classes and the lucky Grand Prize winner will receive a free six month boot camp membership. The fitness boot camp will also be offering a special one day membership deal during the grand opening event.

Those who sign up for a membership will have access to unlimited boot camp classes to tone muscle, burn fat, and get a total body workout. Members also receive access to done-for-you meal plans, nutrition guides and nutritional counseling to take the stress out of dieting and make eating healthy easier than ever.

Parker is excited about donating all proceeds from the mini boot camps and raffle tickets to the Susan G. Komen Organization in Central and South Jersey for the local fight against breast cancer.

“Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women worldwide. In New Jersey alone, over 7,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 1,300 women will die from breast cancer this year,” says Parker. “We try to help women stay healthy through our fitness boot camp by getting them to work out, since studies have shown that exercising significantly lowers the risk of getting breast cancer. But being able to donate funds for research will be a really awesome thing.”
