AVOID THE "SANTA SEVEN" THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!

The holidays can be a stressful time. Busy calendars, loss of daylight and the onset of cold weather is enough to drive anyone to the fridge for some comfort food!

The Partnership TMA, in partnership with Abington Health - Lansdale Hospital, wants you to avoid "the Santa 7" by pledging to walk just 17 minutes per day from Black Friday thru New Year's Eve!

You can walk alone at lunch or with a friend (two-or-four-legged!) after dinner. It's on the honor system, so please log into this FB page daily with your tally: https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Partnership-TMA-of-Montgomery-County/399752207036

At the end of the event, participants will receive a festive set of shoelaces and other goodies!

A few tips: Be cautious and alert to traffic when crossing the road (no cell phones or earbuds) and please wear light clothing or use reflective tape for your clothing and the dog's collar at night. Happy walking!

10/16/2014 -- PTMA ANNOUNCES STUDENT PHOTOJOURNALISM CONTEST FOR FALL 2014!

We have all had those moments where we wished we had a camera handy to capture that perfect sunset over the water or crimson-tinged autumn treeline on a winding backroad.

It's in that spirit that The Partnership TMA announces, Transportation Perspectives - a Student's Photojournalism Contest, for the Fall 2014 semester.  The contest, open to any of our current travel-training students, is seeking photos depicting modes of transportation and their participants.  Themes can include walking, biking, riding the bus, train or subway, infrastructure (roadways, sidewalks, bridges) and amenities (train stations, bus stops, bike racks).

Photos must have captions and can be in print or digital format.  A $100 gift card will be awarded for the top prize with a $50 g/c and $25 g/c going to second and third place winners.  Deadline: December 5, 2014.

For a complete list of guidelines, please contact The Partnership TMA at 215-997-9100 or info@ptma-mc.org.

 

  

06/26/2014 -- DRIVERS NEEDED FOR NORTH PENN VOLUNTEER PROGRAM BEGINNING THIS SUMMER!

In July, the Access Committee of the Greater North Penn Collaborative for Health and Human Services announces the formation of a Volunteer Driver Program.  The program, designed by The Partnership TMA, will service residents who live in the North Penn, Souderton and Wissahickon school districts.  

If you or someone you know has a few hours a month to donate, please consider signing up as a volunteer driver to help seniors and others without any form of transportation access shopping, medical and social activities.  

For more information, please contact The Partnership TMA at 1-866-507-4857 or info@ptma-mc.org.
