health:: walking for a cause

Now that spring has finally arrived (finally!) I've been taking advantage of the weather and going for nice long walks. Sometimes I'll drive to the park with Poppy and walk around the lake that is teaming with ducks or I'll choose the closer to home route and walk along our beautiful tree lined neighborhood streets. I was pleased to find out that my new walking routine doesn't only help keep me fit and healthy but that from 4/1/09-10/31/09, Bumble Bee Foods will donate $0.15/mile for every mile I log on at BeeWell Miles to help Breast Cancer Network of Strength provide emotional support to those who can't wait for tomorrow's cure. It's really easy to do and anyone can do it, even you! Just register on the website and BeeWellMiles provides you with all the resources that you need to make the most of your walk. There, you can interact with top healthy living experts and share your favorite walking/ running routes with other members. You can calculate how many calories you've burned, even your mileage along your route. But the best part of this great website is the fact that each day, the miles you log contribute to Breast Cancer Network of Strength, an organization that provides immediate emotional relief to anyone affected by breast cancer, because cancer isn't just a physical battle, it's an emotional one as well. Oh! And another bonus that I didn't mention is that each day you log in, you have a chance at winning one of 15,000 great prizes! All this, just for doing something healthy like walking? It's JUST COOL!
