Biggest Loser Contest

The Biggest Loser Greene County Edition

The Biggest Loser contest is back! 2020 has been a long and challenging year; if COVID and quarantine have given you some extra pounds, you are not alone. Let the Greene County RHN help. Registration for this year’s contest is now open. Biggest Loser is a 16-week weight loss program open to all Greene County residents. Over 60 cash prizes will be awarded totaling over $7,000. We also have a new Family category this year (must consist of at least 3 family members, 18 years or older). Get your kids off their phones and your spouse off the couch and you can all get healthy together! Participants will receive support throughout the contest with weight loss tips, healthy recipes, exercise suggestions, and nutrition guidance.

Start 2021 off right, LOSE TO WIN!

**We want to stress that the purpose of the Biggest Loser contest is to promote better health for those participating. Each participant is encouraged to engage in healthy, safe and sustainable weight loss. We ask if you are planning to use over-the-counter diet pills or weight loss surgery or any other cosmetic surgery that will result in weight loss (i.e., liposuction, tummy tuck, etc.) that you refrain from participating in this year’s contest. If you cannot participate this year, you are still welcome to access our website which includes a variety of health education information on weight loss, nutrition, exercise and overall health. Thank you.
