POTTSTOWN >> Go the extra mile this week with The Mercury Mile walk.
Everyone’s invited to join the short 1-mile walk through town. Get some fresh air while also doing a relaxing activity. Participants will meet in front of Mannino’s Pizzeria at 903 Charlotte St. noon Wednesday. Side street parking is available in the area. Invite friends, family and even pets to come along for the short exercise which takes about 20 minutes.
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.
