Weight Loss Challenge
The Mark A. Chapman Weight Loss Challenge concluded on April 2nd with incredible results. This team based challenge was very successful in creating teamwork and accountability while losing weight. Teams of 3 competed together to lose the highest percentage of weight in the competition.
The goal was to sign up10 teams for the first ever “Mark A. Chapman Weight Loss Challenge” in Clay Center. However, when the registration deadline passed, 24 teams had signed up for the competition. Ryan Sanneman, Director said, “I was thrilled with the overall response. It far exceeded my expectations. We were pleased to be able to provide a challenge that had an immediate impact on the health of the community."
This week, Weight Loss Challenge participants completed their official weigh-in process. Many people had significant weight loss and the competition was extremely close at the end. Anyone who took the challenge and saw it through was truly a winner. 72 individuals were a part of 24 teams who participated in the Challenge. By the end of the competition those 24 teams had lost a total of 972.25 pounds.
Simultaneously, teams of three people were competing head-to-head in a contest to see which team would have bragging rights for the most percentage weight loss while individual participants were competing for the best individual percentage weight loss.
All teams and individuals had incredible results. Even those who only lost a few pounds should celebrate as research has shown even a few pounds can decrease blood pressure, cholesterol, and other risk factors.
