Family-Friendly Fun – It’s About Connecting with the Community

By Suzanne Dumaresq

St. Joseph Hospital’s mission is clear — provide healing and care for the whole person, in service to all in its communities. To help bring that message to families in Greater Nashua, St. Joe’s recently introduced a new Ambassador of Health and Wellness.

“We welcomed Kendell Reyes, former NFL player, community activist and local resident to our community outreach team earlier this year,” said John Jurczyk, president of St. Joseph Hospital and Covenant Health senior vice president. “Our overarching goal is to connect with families in our community in new, different and fun ways. We want to partner with other non-profits and take a family-friendly approach to educating parents and kids on local resources and fun events that benefit their overall health and wellness.”

In recent months, the hospital has worked with:

  • Boys & Girls Club of Greater Nashua on the Reyes Family Fun Day, which raises money to support the club’s programs.
  • Nashua’s Healthy Kids Running Series, a five-week series that encourages consistent activity and fitness for youth. St. Joe’s will be sponsoring the fall event, too!
