New and Improved Weight Loss Competition to Begin
Posted Date:
12/31/2012

The Wellness Committee has developed a new and improved Weight Loss Competition (individual competition, rather than teams) to provide greater incentive to participate and more opportunities to win.  The program will begin on Thursday, January 3rd.  Participants should come to the Town Hall between 8:00 a.m. and 9:00 a.m. for initial weigh in.  The opportunities to win are as follows:

Weekly Cash Pot

The weekly weigh in fee will be $1.50 and if a participant gains weight during that week, a penalty of $1.00 will be charged.  Participants may pay the entire $18.00 at the beginning of the competition, and avoid having to pay $1.50 each week for convenience.  The male and female that lose the greatest % of weight for the 1-week period will split the weekly pot.  In order to be eligible for the weekly pot, the participant must have weighed in the previous week. 

Subway Gift Cards

Participants will receive a $5 Subway Gift Card each time they reach the following weight loss levels:  1.5%, 3%, 4.5%, 6%, 7.5%, and 9%.  Each weight loss level will equal only one Subway gift card, therefore participants could earn up to 6 (six) $5 Subway gift cards. 

Opportunity to Exercise

As has been in the past, participants will be eligible to exercise 2 (two) days each week for 45 minutes during the workday, workload permitting and with supervisor approval.  

10% Weight Loss = $20 Gift Card of your Choice

Any participant that loses 10% of their body weight during the competition will be awarded a $20 gift card to one of the following Aberdeen businesses:  Subway, Dicks Sporting Goods, Harris Teeter, Texas Roadhouse, or TJ Maxx. 

Final Drawing for Prizes

Once a participant loses 3% of their body weight, their name will be entered into a drawing for final prizes.  Each time a participant loses an additional 1.5% of their body weight, their name will be entered an additional time for the drawings.  Each participant can win up to 2 (two) times only.  The prizes for the final drawing will be:

5 (five) $50 VISA gift cards

5 (five) 8-hour vacation days

The competition will run from January 3, 2013—March 28, 2013.  Final weigh in will be conducted for all participants on the morning of March 28, 2013 by 9:00 a.m. and prizes will be awarded at 9:00 a.m. in the rotunda at the Town Hall.
