MusiCares® Named Founding Charity Partner Of Commitment Day Movement

Stocks in this article: LTM

Life Time Fitness, Inc., The Healthy Way of Life Company (NYSE: LTM), today announced that MusiCares ® has joined the Commitment Day Movement as a Founding Charity Partner.

Founded in 1989, The Recording Academy ® established MusiCares to sustain music and its makers by providing a safety net of critical assistance for music people in times of need. MusiCares' services and resources cover a wide range of financial, medical and personal emergencies, while also focusing the resources and attention of the music industry on human service issues that directly impact the health and welfare of the music community.

In keeping with its commitment to health and human services, MusiCares has joined with other Founding Charities, Corporate Partners and Ambassadors to raise awareness of Commitment Day, a 365-day movement designed to unite all Americans in making personal commitments to a healthier way of life. On January 1, 2013, hundreds of thousands of Americans will kick off the movement by participating in simultaneous 5K-walk/run events spanning 30 cities, symbolizing their stance and personal responsibility to make America healthier.

All Commitment Day registrants are invited to support MusiCares and the other Founding Charity Partners by making a donation in addition to their event registration fee or engaging in supplementary fundraising activities. Founding Charity Partners also will receive recognition and support in connection with the Commitment Day 365 movement during 2012 and 2013.

“With their unwavering commitment to the health and well being of the individuals who make up the large and growing music industry, we are honored to have MusiCares join the Commitment Day Movement,” said Bahram Akradi, Chairman, President, CEO and Founder of Life Time. “The health of America is one of the most crucial issues facing our country, the weight and obesity epidemic now affects two-thirds of U.S. adults and the crippling financial burden of poor health affects us all. There is a solution and it starts with a commitment to healthy eating, exercise, family, giving, personal responsibility, and a healthy planet. Together with MusiCares and our other distinguished partners, we can change America for the better.”
