“Each month, more and more students are electing to walk and roll to Hopewell Elementary School,” said Hopewell Elementary School Principal Friedrich. “There are countless benefits to participation – it reduces traffic, provides physical activity, and mentally prepares children for the day, to name a few. We appreciation this recognition and value our partnership with Greater Mercer TMA and Sourland Cycles.”
