MILLION MILE MONTH NEWS!

Travis County Judge Sarah Eckhardt takes the Million Mile Month challenge and challenges the Travis County employees to not only participate, but complete 10,000 miles on the first day! She states “Now is the time to put this on your personal and work calendars. Now is the time to encourage your HR liaisons and co-workers to get on board and start promoting the challenge in your upcoming newsletters and e-mails. Now is the time to get moving!”

“Physical activity and proper nutrition are essential for a healthy life. Without them we see a number of terrible diseases and conditions arise (cancer, diabetes, depression, obesity and heart disease).[…] We must make a change!”

MILLION MILE MONTH NEWS!

 

Austin Mayor, Steve Adler, encourages all of Austin to join him this April in the Million Mile Month challenge.

$15K in 15 Day Fundraiser to Combat Heart Disease

Posted on by CW Blog in Million Mile Month | Leave a comment

Join us Nov 1-15 in the race against heart disease, and make a HUGE difference in the lives of over 30,000 children and community members who are eager to be a part of the Million Mile Month (MMM)!

During MMM 2014, the MMM Community told heart disease to “beat it” by logging over 540,000 miles and burning over 43 million calories! To keep the momentum going and amplify those accomplishments, we need to hit the community pavement now…and that takes time, money and an army of supporters.

If you are pumped about healthy hearts, join us as we raise $15,000 in 15 days from November 1st – 15th. Together we can put heart disease (the #1 cause of death worldwide) in last place.

SO HOW EXACTLY CAN YOU MAKE A DIFFERENCE In less than 5 minutes?
Start your very own fundraising page through our peer-to-peer fundraising platform! Then reach out to family, friends and others to donate on your page to help you reach your fundraising goal (and watch your donation thermometer fill up in no time).

Funds raised will allow our nonprofit to continue the race against heart disease, as we look to grow the MMM Community from 8,000 to over 30,000 people during MMM 2015 (April 2015) and reach the 1 million mile mark together.

PRIZES
Plus, as our way of saying thank you for your timely and active support in raising funds, we will reward you with some really cool stuff!

    • Raise $100: Gold Registration for MMM 2015 and $30 Road ID Gift Card
    • Raise $200: Gold Registration for MMM 2015, Limited Edition MMM 2014 T-Shirt, and $30 Road ID Gift Card
    • Raise $500: Platinum Registration for MMM 2015, Limited Edition MMM 2014 T-Shirt, MMM Water Bottle, $30 Road ID Gift Card, your name on the MMM website

Plus, follow us on FACEBOOK and TWITTER so you will hear about how to earn bonus prizes!

WHY HEART DISEASE IS SCARIER THAN HALLOWEEN
Did you know that someone dies every 30 seconds from heart disease in America? That is 2,500 people per day and 1 million people a year. Unbelievably that is more than AIDS and all cancers combined. With you on our team we can make a big difference on this terrible disease through MMM 2015.
