Date:4/27/2009

National Initiative Turns a Working Lunch into a Walking Lunch April 29

PITTSBURGH, April 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Walking one mile a day burns about 100 calories; and, to burn the calories in an average candy bar, a person would need to walk the length of a football field 33 times.

Highmark's walk is part of a growing national workplace fitness effort created in response to recent studies that show Americans do not have time during their day to exercise. This activity is part of the Highmark's Lifestyle Returns program which helps participants adopt healthier lifestyles and take a more active role in their health.

Walk@Lunch Day activities will take place at a variety of Highmark locations including Pittsburgh, Camp Hill, Erie, Johnstown, Allentown and Hunt Valley, Md. Pittsburgh's walk will be supported by Western Pennsylvania-based walking-fitness expert, Leslie Sansone; and in Camp Hill, the "
