Weight Loss Challenge
April 4, 2011

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.
The top team won $900 and the top individual loser won $500. Prize money was given to the top 5 teams and top 5 individuals. The prize money was determined by the number of teams in the competition. The registration fee for the competition was returned to the winners and nothing was held back for administrative.
“This competition was a fun way to challenge all of the participants to lose weight.  The prize money was a nice reward, but the truly valuable gift was better health for all participants.”, said Sanneman.
