2019 sponsors included CME Associates, Johnson& Johnson, Magyar Bank, and GoCentralNJ.
In addition, KMM recognized six Middlesex County schools and three municipalities in the NJ Safe Route to School Recognition Program, part of NJDOT’s statewide Safe Routes to School program. The awards are given based on their commitment and involvement in the Safe Routes to School program. This year, twenty schools achieved First Step, five achieved Bronze, and two achieved Silver level recognition.
“The NJ SRTS Recognition Program is a way for KMM to thank our school and municipal partners for their hard work throughout the year making it safer and easier for children and their families to walk and bike to school. We hope that our combined efforts can create a better neighborhood not just for schoolchildren, but for everyone who lives, walks, and bikes in these neighborhoods,” said SRTS Coordinator Christopher Gonda.
