Toms River, NJ, September 7, 2018 – Jeremy Grunin, President of the Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation, will be taking part in the Extraordinary Fitness 10-Week Challenge to raise money for the Toms River Regional School District’s health programs.

Jeremy will be teaming up with incredible community leaders including Joe Palmisano, Owner of Four Seasons Diner in Toms River; Steven Green, President of Green Label Title; Dr. Adam Repole, MD of Ocean Gynecologic and Obstetrical Associates; Joe Nardini, Owner of Gilligan & Nardini Electric; and Dr. Ron Rotem, DDS of Rotem Dental Care, with the help of Rudy Rosa, Owner of Extraordinary Fitness, to support the Toms River Regional Schools and promote health and wellness in our community. The Extraordinary Fitness 10-Week Challenge includes working out at least four hours a week and following a healthy nutrition program guided by a nutritionist and with support from a life coach.

Will Jeremy fully commit to the program and finish all 10 weeks of the challenge? Our Toms River students are counting on him, and you can add to his incentive by putting a few dollars on it. Donate to his fitness journey and at the end of the challenge, all funds raised will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $20,000, by the Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation. This could mean up to $40,000 to the Toms River Regional School District’s health programs.

“I have decided to join forces with Extraordinary Fitness in Toms River to focus on something that is extremely important to the Jay and Linda Grunin Foundation – building a healthier community all while supporting education here in Toms River. I look forward to improving my own health and getting the community involved to raise much needed funds for the Toms River Schools,” said Jeremy Grunin.

The challenge starts on September 10, 2018. To donate, visit
