Hoboken Wellness Crawl

HOBOKEN GIRL HOSTS SECOND ANNUAL HOBOKEN WELLNESS CRAWL

HobokenGirl.com, the Hudson County website centered on all things Hoboken and Jersey City, is celebrating health and wellness in Hoboken with their 2nd Annual Hoboken Wellness Crawl.

The Hoboken Wellness Crawl will occur on Sunday, April 22nd, 2018 from 11:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M throughout Hoboken with over 80 businesses participating. $1 from every ticket sold is being donated to The Water Project, a charity focused on supplying clean drinking water for communities around the world. Last year the event drew in over 600 people, and more are expected this year.

“We’re so excited to be celebrating our 2nd annual event — and supporting local health and wellness businesses in the process. It’s an amazing thing to be able to walk around one square mile and visit all of these local businesses devoted to making us healthier and happier,” says founder Jennifer Casson Tripucka. “This year, hosting the crawl on Earth Day, we chose our charity of choice to be The Water Project, as it is committed to helping communities in need of clean drinking water around the world.”

An entry ticket includes an exclusive map to the Hoboken Wellness Crawl and an entry bracelet used to walk around Hoboken and visit Wellness Stops (at participants’ leisure throughout the day — similar to a bar crawl, sans alcohol). Event-goers will also have access to four Wellness Hubs in Hoboken filled with wellness-focused table vendors. All vendors will be offering samples and giveaways. Over 70 Hudson County businesses are participating.

Tickets are available online here — and on crawl day can be presented at four designated check-in spots around Hoboken – Uptown (Fit Foundry – 1416 Willow Avenue), Downtown (Birch – 92 River Street), West (The Spine and Sports Health Center at the Monroe Center – 720 Monroe Street), and CarePoint Health (109 Grand Street).

Jen Tripucka on Hobokengirl.com

Jen Tripucka, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Hobokengirl.com, visited Lisa Marie Latino in the #HipNJ studio to discuss her inspiration for creating the site.

On New Year’s five years ago, Tripucka decided that she wanted to explore her city. “There’s no place to go where you can find out all the fun things to do in Hoboken,” she said. To remedy this problem, “[she] decided to start writing about it.”

Furthermore, what started out as a personal journey for herself became lifestyle website with 20 contributors! “Over five years, it grew a ton,” she recalled.

In addition, businesses began reaching out to be featured as the site grew! Not only this, but Tripuka’s increased success inspired her to begin work on Montclairgirl.com and Asburygirl.com!

Even further, readers began to go to Tripuka for advice on ways to improve their community.  In response to this, Tripucka started Hoboken Girl Helps, a new volunteering program for Hudson County residents!
