The MONTGOMERY PATHWAYS
system is over 37 miles of trails
throughout the Township.

 

Discover the hidden gem of the trails around the Stonebridge community, consisting of about 2.5 miles of natural trails through forest, along the Bedens Brook & Millstone River, and thru agricultural fields.  The width and surfacing of the trail is not suitable for strollers or walkers.  There are paved pathways around the Stonebridge community that can be used by those who prefer a more stable surface.  This event meets @ the parking area across from the main Stonebridge entrance on Montgomery Road (GPS address:  103 Montgomery Road, Skillman).

Scavenger Hunt: While taking the hike, find hidden items along the trail. Complete the scavenger hunt and enter the raffle to win a prize!

American Cancer Society Volunteer Drivers Needed

Together, we are stronger than cancer!

One of the biggest roadblocks to cancer treatment is transportation. That’s why the American Cancer Society Road to Recovery Program provides patients in need with free rides to treatment. And we need your help.

Our volunteers have provided hundreds of thousands of rides for patients, but the need for drivers continues to accelerate.

As leaders in your community, you’re positioned to inspire others to become volunteers drivers.

So please, help us spread the word about the importance of giving patients a much-needed ride to their cancer-related medical appointments.

Encourage your connections in the community to become involved; they may be surprised by what they get in return.

Drivers need:

  • A good driving record
  • A current driver’s license
  • Proof of adequate automobile insurance
  • Access to a safe and reliable vehicle
  • Schedule availability
  • Regular desktop, laptop, or tablet computer access

To volunteer, or learn how your organization can get involved, visit cancer.org/drive or call your American Cancer Society at 1-800-227-2345.
