Weight Loss Contest also Raises Funds to Fight Breast Cancer
According to an article in the Liverpool Leader, Karen Vlahos created a project in the Landmark self-expression and leadership program rewarding two people with $10,000 who lose the most weight over a ten-week period. The project is also designed to have a positive impact on people’s health in other ways, raising money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
The project invites teams of two people to register at the Moorehead Community Centre on Saturday, September 18, for a $10 fee, which goes to the foundation. Teams are also invited to get sponsorship money from friends and family for Breast Cancer research.
The end of the 10-week weight loss challenge is on Sunday, November 28, at Chipping Norton Lakes where a 10 kilometre community walk will take place, as well as a final weigh-in with an announcement of the prize winners.
Vlahos says she created the project as she came to see how foundational our health really is – in addition to being overweight herself, she has a brother with cancer and a son with a chronic illness. “Without your health you really have nothing,” Vlahos notes.
