DALTON GA, September 20, 2010 — Beaulieu of America associatesdid it again this year by achieving their 2-million mile goal of walking and running for better health and their individual BYB (Be Your Best) goals.

“I’m always amazed at the ability of our Beaulieu Team to meet any challenge and succeed,” commented Ralph Boe, president and CEO. “You have served as an example to our community in leading the walking and overall exercise campaign for better health and well-being.
