Date:4/14/2009

Mayors and Local Leaders Unite to Help Their Communities Adopt a Healthy Lifestyle

NEW YORK, April 14 /PRNewswire/ -- With more than one million people already a part of the online community at 50millionpounds.com, Dr. Ian Smith's 50 Million Pound Challenge, announced today that it has teamed up to hold health walks in fourteen communities across the nation. The walks will be held on May 16 and will bring people together in their own communities and in unity with others across the country to draw attention to the number one health issue facing America - obesity and illnesses that stem from being overweight, like diabetes, stroke, heart disease, and some forms of cancer. It will be an opportunity for people from all walks of life to join others and publicly support the national movement and take symbolic first steps toward a healthier lifestyle.

At the recent National Conference of Mayors, Dr. Ian encouraged the mayors to use The Challenge and its free resources as a platform for addressing the health concerns of their citizens. "Time and time again, we hear from our Challengers that community support is the key ingredient in their success," says Dr. Ian Smith, founder and creator of The 50 Million Pound Challenge and NY Times bestselling author of The 4 Day Diet. "With The Challenge Walk Off on May 16 we can bring entire communities together as part of our commitment to helping the entire country be more focused on personal physical well-being. I applaud the mayors of these fourteen inaugural cities for their leadership. No more simply talking about obesity we are finally going to do something about it."

Alexandria, VA, Mayor William Euille is putting his city on the Challenge, "A city that is physically fit and healthy contributes to the fiscal well being of the city
