News Release 5/14/15 –
SOUTH AMBOY – As summer approaches and children take to the road on their bicycles, the newly-opened Venetian Care & Rehabilitation Center, South Amboy’s cutting-edge short- and long-term care center, will host the town’s first annual Bike Fun Fest on Sunday, May 31 from noon to 3 p.m. Kids and their families are invited to join the fun and at the same time learn some important basics about bike safety.

The Bike Fun Fest is a family-oriented bike safety event that also gives Venetian Care & Rehabilitation Center residents an opportunity to take an active part in their South Amboy community.

“At the Venetian we’re focused on person-directed care and quality of life, and part of that commitment means providing opportunities for our Elders to enjoy the outdoors in the company of families while contributing to the well-being of young children,” said Joshua Jacobs, vice president of Windsor Healthcare Communities, the parent company of Venetian Care & Rehabilitation Center.

Residents of the Venetian will assist staff at the event, which will include bike safety activities as well as fun features such as a bike decorating contest, a moon bounce, sand art, crafts and a fire truck tour. The Venetian Care & Rehabilitation Center has purchased four new bikes that will be raffled off. The Center will also provide free bike helmets to the first 75 attendees.

Bike safety checks and education will be provided by Keep Middlesex Moving, Inc., Middlesex County’s nonprofit transportation management association, with additional staffing from NJ Bicycle and Pedestrian Resource Center’s “Ambassadors in Motion,” of the Alan M. Voorhees Transportation Center of Rutgers University. Staff from Extremz Bike Shop of 108 Main St., Woodbridge, will perform maintenance on participating children’s bikes. Local businesses and organizations have also been invited to set up information tables at the event.

The Bike Fun Fest will be held at the Venetian Care & Rehabilitation Center, 275 John T. O’Leary Blvd. in South Amboy. The rain date is Sunday, June 7. Families should bring their children and their bicycles.
