CARTERET – Members of the Carteret Community are invited to join forces with Pathways, Carteret’s School-Based Youth Services Program to support the inaugural Walkathon to Prevent Bullying on Saturday, May 18. Pathways is encouraging individuals, schools, businesses, and organizations around the community to show their support for its efforts to raise awareness about bullying.
The event will begin at 10 a.m. on Louis Street outside of Pathways, where registration and check-in will also take place. Carteret Mayor Daniel J. Reiman has been invited to give welcoming remarks.
