UPPER POTTSGROVE >> The first day of summer was Monday so celebrate the sunny season with an outdoor walk at The Mercury Mile Wednesday afternoon.
This week’s community walk will be at Kulp Field in Upper Pottsgrove noon Wednesday. Participants will walk around the baseball field. The field is located right next to the Hillside Aquatic Club and the address is 134 W. Moyer Road. Kulp Field is one of 12 regional parks that will compete in a parks contest next month. Learn more about the contest and the park on the walk this week.
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.
