Walk & Make a Difference with BeeWell Miles

Recently I was asked to participate in a campaign called BeeWell Miles . Which is a great program sponsored by Bumble Bee Foods. They are donating $0.15, to Breast Cancer research, for every mile logged. The campaign runs from 4/1/09-10/31/09. And the money will go to the charity called Breast Cancer Network of Strength.

I was very excited to be able to start taking part in this program. I must admit I am not a big exerciser. As far as working out at a gym and the like. But the one form of exercise I have always loved is walking. When I wanted to lose weight before I got married, I walked. When I wanted to lose weight after my pregnancies, I walked.

I love the freedom of walking outdoors, and at the same time getting some exercise. Saturday I decided to head out for a walk. It actually was a bit cold out and pretty windy out, but I didn't let that stop me. Below is a picture my daughter took of me before I headed out for my walk.

I borrowed my husband's ipod, put on my walking shoes, and tried out my new pedometer. When I was done I had walked a little over 2 miles! Today I registered at and logged in my miles. As I mentioned they are donating $0.15 for every mile that is logged in. So just think what a difference I could make if I walked 2 miles a day. I would be doing my part to help in the fight against Breast Cancer and getting some great exercise too.

  1. Thank you for this post! I have been wanting to walk our neighborhood, but we have been here a year, and I've only walked once! Now I have even more reason to move. ALSO my daughter loves to walk, and do what she can for breast cancer support-I will be sharing this with her also! Enjoy your walks:)
