The Journey Begins With A Single Step

Think of how many steps you take each day... Running here and there, taking the kids to school, going to the grocery store, the bank, the post office - not to mention how far you walk every day without even leaving your home - did you know that every 2,000 steps you take equals one mile!

Now all of those steps can help to find a cure for Breast Cancer, thanks to Bumblebee Food's BeeWell Miles program.

For every mile walked, Bumblebee will donate .15 toward breast cancer research (up to $200,000). Participating is as easy as can be - just hook on your pedometer and then visit BeeWell Miles . Log in your miles each day and they will be added to the total miles walked by everyone registered. Not only can you log in your miles, you can get some really great advice to help you get healthy in the process.

The folks at Izea sent out a pedometer to a group of bloggers (I was lucky enough to be one of those chosen). They asked us to wear the pedometer for a day so we could log how many miles we walked. In the 24 hours since I received my pedometer, I've walked 4,204 steps (more than 2 miles!). I have indeed logged those miles onto my bee well log - I'm going to keep it up. It's kind of fun just to see how many steps I take in one day (I had no idea!)

So, what are you waiting for? Sign up at BeeWell Miles - it only takes a minute. Then clip on your pedometer and take a walk. Not only will you be getting healthier, you'll be helping to find a cure for breast cancer.
