Gift Guide 2010: Healthy Heroes Calendar

Nothing wrong with a little eye candy, especially if it’s for a good cause. The 2011 Healthy Heroes Calendar, a fund-raising initiative of Clara Maass Medical Center Foundation, features great action shots of some healthy (read hunky) local heroes — NJ firefighters — taken by Andy Foster of Montclair’s Gallery 51. The guys selected are serving as ambassadors for the Clara Maass’ Lifeline Challenge to Healthy Living programs and will take part, along with registered dietitians and physical fitness experts, in conducting healthy eating and active lifestyle educational programs at schools in and around Essex County. Proceeds raised from calendar sales will help fund these programs and a portion of the proceeds will also benefit the Saint Barnabas Burn Center. Calendars are one for $15 or two for $20; order here or call 973-450-2277 to get yours.
