Letter: Accusplit raises $1,046 for PPIE

Dear Editor,

Thank you for your help in publicizing the 2009 World Walk to Wellness in Pleasanton by listing it in advance both online and in print.

We are pleased to report that Accusplit will be presenting a check for $1,046 to Pleasanton Partnerships in Education (PPIE) Foundation. These donations from participants, matched by our company, will enable PPIE to make more grants to help local public schools implement their wellness plans for students.

Special thanks to David and Teri Eisenhauer of Northwestern Mutual whose information booth helped participants make the connection between wellness and financial planning. We also thank licensed nutritionist Jill Daniels for leading a "Walk With Me" circuit of the Sports Park, answering questions along the way.

Although we already have begun planning the fourth annual World Walk to Wellness for Dec. 31, 2010, your readers need not wait until the last day of the year to enjoy the benefits of walking. We are fortunate to live in an area with many miles of safe and scenic trails. In between winter rains, we encourage our Tri-Valley neighbors of all ages to get out and walk, aiming for a goal of 10,000 steps each day to maintain good health. Our pedometer company's motto is, "Eat right. Walk more. Live well." Feel free to adopt that as your concise New Year's resolution.

W. Ron Sutton ("Mr. Pedometer") President, ACCUSPLIT
