Date:9/24/2009

NEW YORK, Sept. 24 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Association for Physical Activity and Recreation (AAPAR) announced today that, together with Genzyme, the maker of Synvisc-One(TM) (hylan G-F 20), it has joined forces with orthopedic surgeon and author Dr. Nick DiNubile and former Radio City Rockette Mary Six to help educate people suffering from osteoarthritis (OA) of the knee on the importance of knee health and staying active.

"No one should let knee pain control their life; I believe this campaign will empower sufferers to talk with their doctor."

Mary Six, a Radio City Rockette for 13 years, knows firsthand how knee pain can slow down even a person who endured years of intense training in ballet, jazz, tap and modern dance. Life as a Rockette was intense with grueling practice sessions coupled with six shows
