Norwalk man walks marathon to raise funds for kids affected by coronavirus

NORWALK — Joe Hoffman has lived in the Cranbury neighborhood for 17 years, but working a sales job that took him to locations around the world, it was difficult to find time to explore some places closer to home.

Then the COVID-19 pandemic hit, people began working from home, and Hoffman, 53, started walking.

“With nobody being on the road, I was walking on East Rocks and roads I normally wouldn’t be walking on because they’re typically so busy,” Hoffman said. “I discovered neighborhoods I didn’t know existed because I was just driving by them, being in a rush. I was just taking my time and I’d explore.”
