Bee Well

Summer is just around the corner... The weather is getting warmer and flowers are blooming. Bees are buzzing and birds chirp early in the mornings, the trees are beginning to provide welcoming shade in the warming afternoons. It's time to pick up with that walking routine that you abandoned during the cold, dreary, bad weather of winter. Time to drop a few inches and get healthy and fit for the summer fun ahead.

Getting fit means that not only will you fit into those summer clothes, but you will also be doing your body a favor by reducing your risk of many diseases. Breast Cancer is one disease whose risk is lowered when you participate in some sort of regular exercise. Now you can not only get into shape, but help raise money to help those who are already suffering with this horrible disease.

BeeWell Miles is a program sponsored by Bumblebee Foods. By signing up for this free program, you can log your miles walked into their database and they will donate $0.15/mile for every mile logged at (up to $200,000) to help Breast Cancer Network of Strength provide emotional support to those who can't wait for tomorrow's cure. is not only the place to log your miles to help others, but it's also the place to help you get healthy yourself. "Easy Moves with Coach Jenny" provides you with insightful articles to help you get more health benefits from walking or running. "Wise Choices with Willow and Stephanie" features weekly articles, tips and ideas to help you eat well and Bee Well! There are forums where you can connect with others trying to reach their goal too.

Did I mention that you can also win prizes for logging your miles? Yes, there are prizes to be won too, so what are you waiting for? Get out there, lace up those sneakers, clip on that pedometer and start walking! It will help get you healthy and also help those who aren't so lucky.
