‘Off the couch’

Rhoshonda Jones, an address management systems manager in Bellmawr, NJ, shared her approach to fitness in the summer issue of The Eagle magazine.

Wanting to improve her health with exercise, Jones recruited friends and family to get her “off the couch.”

Encouraged by her success and wanting to help others get fit, Jones founded Goals Start Now, a nonprofit that promotes an active lifestyle and sponsors group meet-ups for a variety of activities, including walking, cycling, kayaking and pickleball.

Jones manages the Propel 100 Charity Bike Ride, which is an annual fundraiser for Goals Start Now. The proceeds go to cancer support services such as prescriptions, wigs and scarves, and home care.

“A lot of people support cancer research, but we want to help people right now with whatever they need,” Jones said.

The Eagle is seeking to feature more employees like Jones in future editions of “Spotlight.”
