Another great cause I have to let you all know about is from Bumble Bee Foods. From 4/1/09 – 10/31/09, Bumble Bee Foods will donate 15 cents for every mile you log over at BeeWellMiles.com (up to $200,000) to Breast Cancer Network of Strength. This is a charity that provides emotional support to women with breast cancer. It is super easy too — all you have to do is log the miles you walk and run each day. That's it!
It is quite easy to rack up several miles daily. If you look at my pedometer above, I've already earned about $1.50 already! Granted, that is a couple of days worth of steps, but still. Without even trying (since we've had nothing but cold and snow here in Chicago), I was able to raise that much already! Not only can you walk for a good cause, you can lose inches from your waistline too!
The BeeWell Miles website is great place for resources too! Besides logging you miles, you can learn how many calories you've burned, how many miles your route is, and see how your activity and nutrition offset one another. (That's just a couple of things. There is a lot more on the site to check out.) The best thing has to be that you can instantly win one of 15,000 prizes they are giving away. All you have to do is log your miles or game codes from your pink Bumble Bee cans.
Lose weight. Raise money for a good cause. What else could you ask for?
