Run or Walk for a Good Cause!


I’m all about cancer awareness and supporting the Breast Cancer Foundation. Several people in my family have been affected greatly due to this disease and I feel a a strong urge to show my support.  I found out this week that there is a pretty easy way to donate to the Breast Cancer Foundation through simply donating  by participating in walks or runs.  I learned that Bumble Bee Foods is one of many generous companies that participates.

From April 1st to October 31st of 2009, you can; Log the miles you walk or run in one day on BeeWell Miles . Bumble Bee Foods will donate $0.15/mile for every mile logged at BeeWell (up to $200,000) to help Breast Cancer Network of Strength provide emotional support to those who can’t wait for tomorrow’s cure.

My husband and I have been working on getting fit this year so we plan on walking at least five miles a week which is easy for us to do with the route I planned out on their site. If we walk 2.5 miles a day for 2 days a week,  that would be 5  miles a week which equals  a donation of $1.50 a week and $6.00 a month! This would be helping to save  lives and establishing our own healthy life style!  I may even bump that millage a week up higher as we start establishing the pattern.  You can even invite your friends and have them log their miles too!

BeeWell Miles website is wonderful as it gives you all the resources you need to make the most of it. Interact with healthy living experts, log your miles and discover the calories you burn! You can make this your site for weight loss and keeping fit. It is also interactive where you can share fitness stories and also diet stories. Interact with other guests and share ideas and tips on getting healthy. I don’t know about you but this really motivates me to get going.

An added bonus is that each day you log miles or game codes from pink Bumble Bee cans.  There’s a great chance that you could instantly win one of 15,000 prizes!!
