On Tuesday, Devils Chairman and Managing Partner Jeff Vanderbeek and Devils legend Ken Daneyko joined Woodbridge Township Mayor John E. McCormac and the Mayor's Wellness Campaign at “center ice” at The Arenas at Woodbridge in the Community Center as part of a special challenge to encourage Township residents to sign-up for and participate in the “Drop-A-Ton” health and wellness weight-loss campaign.

Challenge participants who lose more weight than Mayor McCormac will win a three-month free membership to the Woodbridge YMCA and a “Total Makeover” from Vito Mazza Salon & Spa. The Devils will provide game-day tickets to “Drop-A-Ton” participants for their Nov. 23 game against the Blue Jackets at Prudential Center.

Weight loss totals will be based on the honor system.

In addition to the weight loss challenge, “Woodbridge Drop-A-Ton” will help in the fight against hunger in our community. For every pound pledged, Woodbridge “Drop-A-Ton” will donate $1 to “We Feed Woodbridge” in support of local food pantries. The objective of the Woodbridge “Drop-A-Ton” weight loss challenge is to help Woodbridge residents lose a ton - 2,000 pounds - and to engage a healthier lifestyle, and to donate $2,000 to our food pantries.
