Family, friends and clients of Bridgewater's Samantha Green turned out in a cavalcade of vehicles to help the physical trainer celebrate her 31st birthday.

Approximately 25 vehicles paraded past Green's home on Elizabeth Avenue in Bridgewater to show their support amid the pandemic, which has forced her to shutter her Just Real Fitness training studio on King Street.

Samantha's mother, Lisa Green, said she and her husband organized the event to include her friends, family and dedicated clients.

"She has been holding online fitness classes (for free) and keeping us all a little mentally and physically motivated, but mostly so we can all stay healthy and fit during this Corona pandemic," she told LighthouseNOW in an email.

Protected by plastic bag shields that Lisa made, the parents were able to give their daughter their first hugs since the pandemic began.

"She was very overwhelmed with it all," reported Samantha's mother.
