Jennifer Lopez Launches Health Campaign In The Bronx

Hollywood superstar Jennifer Lopez returned to her former New York City neighbourhood this week (beg12May14) to kickstart her new health initiative.

The actress/singer has teamed up with officials at New York's Montefiore Medical Center through her Lopez Family Foundation to help promote fitness and wellbeing among children and women in the Bronx, the tough area where she grew up.

Lopez visited the centre with her sister Lynda on Tuesday (13May14) to meet staff and take part in a healthy cooking exercise.

The star has previously said of the scheme, "My roots are in the Bronx. It was natural to join forces with Montefiore. We're looking forward to expanding the efforts underway in the borough where I grew up."

After her visit, she posted a snap of herself chatting to fellow mothers and their kids, and tweeted: "Excited to start working on Center for A Healthy Childhood with Montefiore Nyc."
