POTTSTOWN >> Walk through the town at this week’s Mercury Mile noon Wednesday.
Participants will meet at The Mercury building located at 24 N. Hanover St. Street parking is available in the area. The short community walk is a great way to get outdoors and relax in nature. Walking has benefits for both physical and mental health. Invite friends, family and even pets to come along for the short exercise.
The Mercury Mile is weekly and promotes walking and other fitness activities as a free exercise. Sometimes, different businesses or organizations host the weekly activity. The walk has travelled from one organization to the next encouraging staff to walk at lunch and inviting the community to join as well. Walkers are asked to bring business cards or contact information to exchange with one another.
Businesses that host The Mercury Mile will be featured in our “Businesses in Motion” section online and in the print newspaper. Organizations interested in hosting the walk should email Michilea Patterson at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 610-850-0282 to schedule a time.
