Newsletter by:   Hillarie Z. Scannelli (Co-Owner @ !MPACT)

Dedication to Rose Skavron:  Our newsletter this month is dedicated to Rose Skavron, who passed away at the beginning of May.  Rose was a wonderful wife and mother, in addition to being an amazing second-grade school teacher at Sunny Mead Elementary School here in Hillsborough.  Rose was also an !MPACT client who often enjoyed our bootcamps.  At age 47 her life was cut way too short, due to complications from a health condition, and we will miss her smile and enthusiasm for fitness.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to Rose’s husband, Bob, their eight-year old daughter, Faith, her parents, her friends and all the teachers at Sunny Mead Elementary who miss their friend very much and think about her every day.


BOOTCAMP FOR BILLYPlease MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!!  Join us at !MPACT Training on Sunday, June 2nd, from 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. to help raise money for an adorable little boy from our Hillsborough community named Billy Biviano.  He was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor at age 14 months – and is now 19 months old.  He is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatments – and thanks to a wonderful organization called Steps Together, Billy’s family is getting the help they need (helping to cover medical expenses, family support groups and more).   Please come and donate $20 (or more) towards this worthy cause, and you will take part in a fun-filled bootcamp using cutting-edge equipment.  All fitness levels are welcome at this event (adults and teens ages 15+), and variations to all exercises will be offered.  No need to formally register . . . just arrive by 8:50 a.m. to fill out a short waiver if you are new to !MPACT.  If you cannot make our fundraising event but would still like to donate, please make checks payable to:  Steps Together.  Thank you for your continued prayers and support for Billy and his family.  If you would like to read more about this story, log onto:  www.steps-together.com/billy

SPECIAL EVENT AND DISCOUNT FOR FIREFIGHTERS, EMS WORKERS AND POLICE:  On Sunday !MPACT hosted a free event for Hillsborough Firefighters, EMS workers and Police.  We did this as part of our Pay-It-Forward Mission . . . giving back to the community, and doing something good for workers who do so much for us.  This was a two-hour event where they were given a nutritional lecture upon arrival so they would learn to fuel their bodies for optimal performance and to help them reach their fitness goals.  After the lecture they participated in a challenging bootcamp, and as they cooled down, they participated in a written exercise that would help them understand how to set priorities and how to add more balance to their lives.  It was a lot of fun, and we hope the participants got a lot out of the event.  At the end of their day, we announced we are now offering a SPECIAL DISCOUNT for firefighters, EMS workers and Police . . . $99 per month for Unlimited Training (regularly $150 per month or $135 per month if you are taking advantage of our 3-Month Discount Plan).  We hope this special discount will encourage these workers to take better care of their bodies and make their fitness and health a priority.  Many thanks to them for all they do for us!  We offer this type of event for corporations or small companies who want to create camaraderie amongst their employees – and as a way to promote wellness and fitness.  For pricing on an event such as this, contact:  Michael@ImpactTraining-NJ.com
