Making Those Steps Count

walking down a country road in the spring

Last year I participated in a program where my walking counted.

That program was the BeeWell Miles that was sponsored by Bumble Bee Tuna.

Last year they donated .10 cents for each mile walked to the
Breast Cancer Network of Strength.

This year they are donating .15 cents per mile, and I have already started logging my steps.

The program runs through October 31, and they are hoping for a total of one million miles from all the participants.

My sister also participated last year, but due to health problems, she didn't think she would be able to do it this year and was quite upset about it.

But after checking more on the site, it is not only steps that are counted by walking. Running and cycling are also on the list.

Being the thoughtful and determined person that my sister is, she purchased one of those pedal exercisers that you can use in a chair.

Now, I figure, if she can do this, there is no reason why the rest of us cannot due our part.

I am so proud of her, and my niece too - she signed up this year for the first time.

It's free to sign up and the program is a great motivator to get and keep walking.
