Announcing the Eastern Regional “Biggest Loser” Contest!

by / / Social Action

As part of the Eastern Regional Social Action focus, we recognize the health issues associated with obesity. We also know how challenging it can be when trying to lose weight on your own.  As a result we’d like to invite you to join us in the first Eastern Regional “Biggest Loser” Contest. Our hope is that by taking the journey together as Brothers we can encourage one another and get fit in a healthy way.  We will encourage gentle lifestyle changes in diet, exercise and lifestyle so that we can maximize the health benefits.  Our contest will run from September 18, 2015 until our Regional Conference in April 2016 when the winner will be announced.

There are two ways to play:  1) Cash prize 2) ‘Bragging Rights’.  In order to play for the cash prize you must pay the entry fee of $20.00 to join our team.  You can start the process by emailing socialaction@pbseast.org. You will receive a link to a registration page where you can pay your entry fee. Your registration packet will include a participation note that you will need to have signed by your doctor.  We will not ask you to provide personal information that may be posted. Any personal information will only be used to track progress and will be kept private.  We will give you access to a secure portal that lists participants only by member or code number so that you can see where you stand on a weekly basis.  We will need to validate your initial weigh-in so that we can baseline your weight. The doctors’ note is to encourage each of us to see our health care professionals so that we practice and maintain a healthy lifestyle. The winner will be selected from among the Brothers that loses the largest percentage body weight.

In order to participate in the ‘Bragging Rights’ category there is no entry fee necessary. You simply send an email to socialaction@pbseast.org and complete the registration information on the link you receive.  While you will not be able to win the cash prize you can still get fit with the rest of the Eastern Region and play along with all the Brothers that are participating.

Our goal is to get chapters and Brothers to be active and support a healthy lifestyle.  This is the perfect opportunity to dedicate ourselves to the cause of health living.  Good luck and may the ‘Biggest Loser’ WIN!!!
