Date:5/14/2009

ALBERT LEA, Minn., May 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Hundreds of Albert Lea residents joined together on Thursday night, May 14, and pledged to take part in the AARP(R)/Blue Zones(R) Vitality Project sponsored by United Health Foundation, an unprecedented city-wide health makeover designed to inspire residents to take charge of their health so that they can live longer, better.

Since January, Albert Lea leaders have been working behind the scenes with the AARP/Blue Zones Vitality Project to make changes to their community that will promote health and longevity. Today, residents who live or work in Albert Lea made an individual commitment to participate in the first-ever longevity makeover of an entire community. The Vitality Project will shine a national spotlight on the efforts of one small town working together to make a commitment to better health and increased longevity.

"Albert Lea residents will learn that by making a few simple changes to the way we live and the way we think, we can vastly improve our health and actually stack the deck in our favor to live longer, better," said Dan Buettner, founder of Blue Zones and the project leader. Buettner is a Minnesotan and author of the New York Times bestselling book, The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer From the People Who've Lived the Longest.

"The people of Albert Lea have shown an intense commitment to this project already -- and I believe they are ready to not just add years to their life -- but life to their years," said AARP National Board Member Hubert H. "Skip" Humphrey, III. "AARP is proud to watch Albert Lea, Minnesota show the rest of the world how to make a serious and mindful commitment to improving health and longevity."

"The United Health Foundation has a passion for supporting projects that can strengthen the overall health of a community," said Daniel Johnson, executive dire
