Help Raise Awareness of Obesity - Annual 'Walk From Obesity' Invites Participants to Join a Walk in Their Local Area
Date:9/24/2007

GAINESVILLE, Fla., Sept. 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On Saturday, September 29, 2007, the American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) Foundation and Obesity Action Coalition (OAC) are set to host the 2007 "Walk from Obesity" in more than 70 cities across the United States.

This weekend, those affected by the disease of obesity will join forces and walk to raise money for education, research, advocacy, prevention and treatment of obesity. This year's Walk invites friends, family members, colleagues and supporters of those who are affected to join together in taking steps toward a healthier life.

"The 'Walk from Obesity' will greatly demonstrate the proactive voice of the obesity community. Many Walk participants are seeking access to safe and effective obesity treatment options. Unfortunately, these treatments are difficult to access and often lead to patient frustration. Proceeds from the Walk benefit research, education and advocacy efforts to improve access to care and raise awareness of this disease," said Joseph Nadglowski, Jr., ASMBS Foundation Executive Director.

The cost to participate and show your support of the Walk is $25. The funds raised through this event support the ASMBS Foundation and OAC's independent educational missions and fund programs focused on research, education and advocacy for all those affected by obesity. To register for a "Walk from Obesity" in your area, please visit http://www.walkfromobesity.com.

In 2006, the "Walk from Obesity" raised more than $600,000 and more than 5,000 individuals attended the event across the United States. To date, the "Walk from Obesity" has raised more than $2.2 million nationwide.

The ASMBS Foundation and OAC are proud to recognize the 2007 national "Walk from Obesity" sponsors: Platinum Sponsors: Covidien; and Ethicon Endo- Surgery; Gold Sponsor: Allergan; Bronze Sponsors: Bariatric Advantage;
