|Mr. George Martin, 1986 Super Bowl Champion
N.Y. Giants Defensive End (1975 – 1988)
MAPLEWOOD, NJ (Nov. 26) - Policemen, firemen and first responders are invited to meet N.Y. Giants Super Bowl Champion George Martin during a tailgate party and free preventive health event, which is being sponsored by Newark Beth Israel Medical Center (NBIMC).
"Monday Night Football and Men’s Health Night with The Beth" will take place on Dec. 3rd at 6:30 pm. Men will have an opportunity to enjoy free refreshments, prizes and giveaways. Later, at 8:30 pm, participants can cheer as they watch a broadcast of the National Football League's (NFL) New York Giants versus the Washington Redskins game. The festivities will take place in the comforts of a lounge at The Maplewood Country Club, which is located at 28 Baker Street in Maplewood.
Mr. Martin, a legendary defensive lineman, who played for the N.Y. Giants from 1975 to 1988 will speak with participants. He was a team captain in January 1987 during Giant’s Super Bowl XXI victory over the Denver Broncos. Mr. Martin’s presence at the event combined with the screenings and health information are designed to arm men with practical tools for improving the quality of their lives.
“In the beginning of 2012, we made a commitment to host an event to engage people in their own wellness – we’ve hosted events for parents and children and women, and now we will host a free Men’s Health program,” said John A. Brennan, MD, MPH, President and Chief Executive Officer of Newark Beth Israel Medical Center and Children's Hospital of New Jersey. "Hurricane Sandy reminded us of the value of fire, police and first responders and the importance of them being healthy at all times to respond to emergencies like that we just experienced.”
