Annual Event Provides Chance to Get Out, Raise Scholarship Money

A recent study extolling the virtues of physical activity toward lowering women's risk of breast cancer before menopause should provide plenty of incentive to take part in this year in AIHce's 24th Annual American Industrial Hygiene Foundation's Fun Run/Walk on Tuesday, June 3, sponsored by General Mills and MSA.

The study was conducted by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and Harvard University in Boston and is available online in the Journal of the National Cancer Institute. Of the nearly 65,000 women analyzed, the study found that those who were physically active had a 23 percent lower risk of breast cancer before menopause. In particular, high levels of physical activity from ages 12 to 22 contributed most strongly to the lower breast cancer risk.

But if you still need another reason to get up at 6:30 a.m. to run a 5K or walk a 2K, then do it because it not only improves your health but also supports future industrial hygienists! Money raised at the event supports the American Industrial Hygiene Foundation's scholarships. Still, if sleeping in is your preference that day, you still can show your support (sans seeing the sunrise or the health benefits) by purchasing a $10 AIHce 2008 conference pin at AIHF's booth.
