The corrected release reads:


Saying “out with resolutions, in with commitments” Americans united at Commitment Day 5K walk/run events simultaneously in more than 25 cities

Tens of thousands of walkers and runners started off the New Year on the right foot today – literally.

(NYSE: LTM) – The Healthy Way of Life Company. January 1, 2013, marked the inaugural Commitment Day 5K event.

Commitment Day participants were encouraged to raise funds the Commitment Day Founding Charity Partner of their choice, including Special Olympics, MusiCares, Folds of Honor, Augie’s Quest – MDA and the Life Time Foundation.

Supporting the launch of the movement were Founding Corporate Partners Best Buy, Blue365, Hosting, Intereum, Interline Brands, Japs-Olson, Life Fitness, Loffler, Matrix, SNAP, SPRI, Staples, Whole Foods and Woodway.

Also lending personal support were Commitment Day Founding Celebrity Ambassadors Eric Decker, Larysa Didio, Chris Freytag, Joel Harper, Sarah Haskins, Jerry Kill, Glen Mason, Glen and Alisha Perkins, Christian Ponder, Major Dan Rooney, Kelly Rowland, Ricky Rubio, Norwood Teague, Darrell Thompson and Mike Yeo.
