Working Out: Tip of the Day

Working out – Healthier in more ways than one.

Regular exercise may help older women significantly reduce their risk of breast cancer. In a recently published study of 62,000 women between ages 55 and 69, women who biked or walked for an hour each day cut their breast cancer risk by 19 percent. The vast majority of breast cancer cases – 75 percent – occur in postmenopausal women. Regular exercise has many additional benefits, of course. One of the most significant: a reduced risk of heart disease, which affects even more women than breast cancer does.

    I have a question regarding the logo above. I have a team participating in the End Breast Cancer walk in Indianapolis, IN this Fall. I was wondering if your logo is copyrighted. If so, would you give us permission to use it as our Team logo? The funds raised from this event will not only go toward Breast Cancer Research but will also provide patient care for the under-served women in central Indiana.
    Our team is called Five Generations. I am the fourth generation in my family to be diagnosed with breast cancer. We are walking 60K to hopefully prevent future generations from being impacted by this disease.
    Thank you for your consideration.
