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.
Having clean water is a major concern and in some areas of the world people don’t have access to it. That’s why Filters Fast is making a commitment to bring clean water to those parts of the world that need fresh water. We are launching the W3 campaign, a unique water charity designed to raise money and draw awareness.
Filters Fast is specifically making a difference by walking. Several of our employees are making a corporate effort to do their part for this water charity by using what’s known as a “Trekdesk” to log each single mile they walk, then converting each mile into a donation that will go towards W3 and providing clean water access to those areas lacking it.
A TrekDesk is a combination desk and treadmill, allowing users to work out while they work. Instead of sitting all day you can walk, which will allow you to log miles that can be used towards our W3 charity. And with the start of a New Year, it’s a perfect time to reach your resolution of being healthy and getting into shape. W3 is an easy way to stay involved and also allows you to get in shape while helping out those less fortunate.
In addition, it’s a good idea to get your children involved. Childhood obesity is becoming a major issue, so encouraging your children to participate in this initiative will allow them to help a good cause, while also keeping them physically fit and active. We also invite high school, minor league and major league sports teams, college sororities and fraternities, and any other types of organizations to join this initiative.
