Subject: Fairfield County AHA Start! Heart Walk THIS SUNDAY highlights need for heart health awareness in community - interested in covering?

Good morning:

I'm reaching out on behalf of Nestle Waters' Poland Spring water in Fairfield County, a local organization that continues to support healthy lifestyles within the community. THIS Sunday, October 18 at Sherwood Island State Park in Westport, Poland Spring and the American Heart Association are joining forces to get residents up and on their feet, promoting walking as part of a healthy lifestyle and to raise funds to support cardiovascular research and educational programs for the Fairfield County community.

In addition, Poland Spring will be serving as an Eat Street Sponsor at the Poland Spring Start! Heart Walk and will be handing out free samples of Poland Spring water as well as providing tips on hydration as part of a healthy lifestyle.

If interested, I would be able to provide:

o Action photos from the walk event on Sunday (we will be sending an AP photographer)

o Interview with an Poland Spring executive from the Fairfield County area on how water can help promote heart health and what Poland Spring is doing to promote healthy living in the community

I've included full release details, please let me know if you are interested or if there is a more appropriate person to reach out to.

Thanks so much!
