Wellness Initiative

You, Your Club and the FJMC Wellness Program


FJMC Past President Bob Braitman has challenged the men of our community to commit to improving their health. The initial stage of this effort will focus on weight, nutrition and exercise.  


  • To increase awareness of health and wellness issues by the men of our communities
  • To encourage Men’s Clubs to adopt wellness programming as an integral part of their mission
