“We are asking all walkers in the program to embrace our new pledge, called Walk the Talk,” said Becky Taylor, another Trenton Trails subcommittee leader and former co-president of the Lawrence Hopewell Trail. This credo, similar to Scout pledges, commits each walker to have every other walker’s back. If there’s an issue on the trail, whether it’s health, social or safety-related, walkers promise to help fellow walkers in need.
