For every ticket sold, we are donating $1 to the Hoboken Community Center Food Pantry. The crawl will feature brick-and-mortar businesses + online/mobile businesses. The goal of the Hoboken Wellness Crawl is to connect local residents with wellness businesses in Hudson County to celebrate all of the incredible food, fitness, health, and beauty options available in our community. You’ll get a map, bracelet, bag, and then walk or bike all around #Hoboken at your leisure to visit different wellness businesses locally that all are giving away freebies, class passes, samples, and more. All of the vendors for the crawl are listed here — including details about freebies, giveaways, and select additional deals. Additional promotions are available from 9/19 to 9/24.

Born in Jersey City and raised in West New York, where she currently resides, this Hudson county native can usually be found with an Americano in hand, or any caffeinated beverage really. A St. Peter’s University alum with a degree in Communication and Media Culture, Yarleen was News Editor of her college newspaper, while also reporting for the Hudson Reporter and The Jersey Journal. When she’s not on stage, enjoying a new hobby {currently rollerskating}, or typing away on her laptop, you can catch her running along the waterfront listening to the Red Hot Chili Peppers or exploring NYC galleries.
