The New Jersey Chamber of Commerce’s annual Walk to Washington slated for this week has been postponed due to inclement weather, the chamber announced Wednesday.
The 77th annual walk was scheduled to occur Thursday, however an incoming storm prompted the chamber to postpone the event based on the recommendation of Amtrak, officials said.
“First and foremost, we don’t want to risk the safety of 900 guests registered for this event, which requires travel in and through three states and Washington D.C.,” said Tom Bracken, president and CEO of the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce, in a statement.
“The Walk to Washington will go on, as it is such an important event for New Jersey,” he said, explaining the event will be rescheduled.
