The Riverwalk Trust is partnering with local residents, local instructors and the City of Fort Lauderdale to activate our Riverwalk Park with programs ranging from wellness to cooking classes and downloadable tours

Go Riverwalk has sponsored Total Wellness to provide a class schedule held in Downtown Fort Lauderdale every day in Smoker Family Park, located at 501 S. New River Drive East Fort Lauderdale FL 33301.

Total Wellness Professionals will help develop the consciousness of the people in South Florida who are looking to step up to the plate and stare natural healthcare in the eye!

We are offering an array of classes consisting of Yoga, Pilates, Budokon, strength & agility, and meditation, all performed by licensed individuals, most of whom have taught in their prospective fields for over five years.

G is for Giving...Supporting Education!

Junior Achievement of South Florida’s Circle of Wise Women is hosting JA World Uncorked! on 10|30|10

Presented by Southern Wine and Spirits, this fundraising event will match some of the finest food establishments in South Florida with domestic and international wines and specialty drinks giving approximately 600 guests a mouth watering experience. JA World Uncorked! will showcase food, libations and entertainment in the new state-of-the-art 60,000 square foot facility, JA World Huizenga Center at Broward College.  Join Lorraine Thomas,  our Honorary Chair, and the Circle of Wise Women for an educational evening!

Some of the magnificent auction items include a one week stay at a Starwood home in Aspen Colorado during the June 2011 Aspen Wine & Food Festival, Four Days/Three Nights at Superclub’s Breezes Grand Resort & Spa in Negril, Jamaica, and a Diamond Necklace from Daoud’s Fine Jewelry Fort Lauderdale.  If you’re on Facebook click here to view the photos of the JA World Uncorked auction items.

More than 55,000 students learn about finances, banking, commerce, jobs, and work and much more through the 25 programs offered by Junior Achievement. The Circle of Wise Women’s goal is to support these efforts. At JA World’s facility two experiential programs focused on 5th grade and 8th grade students. After extensive in-class, curriculum driven preparation, the students come for an onsite visit where they are an “adult” for a day. The 5th grade students work in JA BizTowns learning to run a business and 8th grade students learn personal financial responsibility and budgeting; skills that every student should know to become a successful adult.
