On September 29, 2012 the 16th annual Family Health and Fitness Day will kick off. This annual event is held to promote family involvement in physical activity. Around the country, local organizations such as YMCA’s, schools, park districts and more will hold health-related events with the purpose of not only promoting fitness but also fighting obesity and making important lifestyle changes.

These lifestyle changes center on developing a regular exercise routine for you and your family. Unfortunately, many routines never come to pass due to a lack of motivation. But what if you weren’t just exercising for you? What if you were also doing it for others as well? With The W3 Project’s “Walk for you. Walk for them” campaign, you can do just that. With every mile donated, The W3 Project will raise $1 for Wine To Water in an effort to bring clean water to those in need. Every mile donated will bring clean water to one person for an entire year. For more information on this charity effort, go to www.filtersfast.com/w3 .

There are many exercise routines that you and your family can take part of on a regular basis even after this event is over. Taking a long walk around your neighborhood, going on a hike or bike ride with your family are great ways to stay fit and live a more healthy life.

As our country’s obesity rate continues to stay at alarming levels, the importance of health and fitness has never been more important. This is your opportunity to find a health-related event in your area, gather your family and get fit.

Making a Difference – Donate Miles for Clean Water

At Filtersfast.com our employees are making a statement about our corporate social responsibility for the environment and for the people around the world without access to clean drinking water. As partners of The W3 Project with Wine To Water and TrekDesk, the departments in Filtersfast.com are walking for a cause. We are walking to build a community of humanitarians who walk in the pursuit of health and wellness for everyone with two crucial reasons in mind:

1.)    To help provide clean drinking water to those without access to it through our partnership with Wine To Water

2.)    To raise awareness about the small steps we can take to help decrease the obesity problem in our country through our partnership with TrekDesk Treadmill Desks

We are accomplishing these goals throughout our various departments. Many office personnel are walking daily on their TrekDesk Treadmill Desks while compiling miles to donate to The W3 Project. Members within the Warehouse Department are using pedometers to track and donate the miles they walk each day, while carrying out their daily job responsibilities.

We are also collecting aluminum cans to redeem and donate that money to The W3 Project. This donation will be used to help bring clean drinking water to those who do not have access to it. 

If you would like to support The W3 Project, visit www.filtersfast.com/w3 and select “Donate Miles” or “Sponsor Miles.” You can also connect with The W3 Project via Twitter and Facebook.
