Media Advisory

ANNANDALE, N.J./EWORLDWIRE/Oct. 6, 2017 --- In keeping with a commitment to serve others, the students and staff of Hunterdon Preparatory School are putting their support behind Pedals for Progress, a NJ 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation which is working to transform the lives of people in developing countries.

On Friday, participants will be walking to raise funds to that will be applied to the transport of bicycles and sewing machines to destinations around the world.

In Nicaragua, for example, bicycles were provided as a means of transportation so that children who previously attended school on average only until fourth grade could continue their education, now graduating from high school.

Women and men struggling to support their families are provided with sewing machines which offer a direct means of financial independence.

At the beginning of each academic year, Hunterdon Preparatory School identifies a charitable organization that is the focus of their efforts. Students become directly involved in activities that in the past have provided donations of items to veterans' organizations, to animal shelters, and more.

"We show our students through a relational and experiential teaching approach how their choices can have a direct impact on the lives of others," stated Hunterdon Preparatory School Director Toby Loyd. "We are teaching them the value of connecting to the communities that they live in, so that they can identify and use their gifts and talents in the service of others."
