April 28, 2011 - PRLog -- Costa Mesa, CA—APRIL 26, 2011.  The Board of Directors for Project Independence announced today that sponsors T.V. EARS, FILICE INSURANCE, UNION BANK, EINSURANCE, TOSHIBA and HANGAR 17 are stepping up in support of Project Independence Walk for Independence and Health Fair.

“We are thrilled with the community support we are receiving this year for our Walk for Independence and Health Fair” said Board Chair Dan Pittman.  “Our support for people with disabilities is a community affair, all of us working together.  We’re looking forward to a large turnout on May 1st”

John has lost 30 pounds since January.  He’s done a lot of tittering back and forth but averaging 7 pounds a month is terrific by any standard.  John’s story makes it more remarkable.  He weighed in at over 400 pounds and has developmental disabilities.  How does he do it?  The old fashioned way.  He walks the track, increasing mileage slowly but surely and eating more vegetables.  He’ll be at the Walk on Sunday.  His team has over 18 participants.

The Project Independence Walk for Independence and Health Fair will be held at Central Park in Huntington Beach from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Sunday, May 1st.  Walkers can register at, or at Project Independence’s Costa Mesa office (3505 Cadillac, Suite O-103), or at the event.  Pedometers, goodie bags and t-shirts are included in the $25.00 registration fee.  For additional information, please visit or call our office at 714-549-3464.  Jaliscos Grill is providing lunch for a $5.00 donation.
