Great news! Thanks to everyone’s help, the American Diabetes Association has raised an additional $18,000 since March 1 as part of Bumble Bee Foods’ “BeeWell for Life” (BWFL) program, placing us in the lead to win the year-long competition.
If you haven’t done so, join BWFL today, select the American Diabetes Association and start tracking healthy activities to help raise funds and keep us in the lead. You may also send targeted communications available via MyADA to your volunteers, encouraging them to participate in this win-win program.
As a reminder, National Promotional Sponsor Bumble Bee Foods, North America’s largest branded shelf-stable seafood company, chose the Association as one of its charity partners for this year’s BWFL program. An interactive health and wellness program, BeeWell for Life (www.BeeWellForLife.com) offers consumers the chance to earn points by logging the miles they walk, run or bike, completing weekly challenges and entering their calorie intake each day. These points translate to money earned for the consumer’s partner charity of choice – so you will need to select the Association when you sign up. Participants can also take advantage of useful health and wellness-related tools and resources including information on preventing and/or managing diabetes.
· Log miles (earn 3 points per mile you walk, run or cycle)
· Take challenges (earn 2 points per challenge you complete)
· Earn badges of accomplishment that you can share with friends via Facebook and Twitter
