Taylorville Memorial Hospital Foundation is hosting their 35th Lose-to-win challenge which will take place from May 8th until August 14th. The 34th lose-to-win challenge wrapped up the last week of April with Ray Heimsness of Taylorville taking the top prize as he lost nearly twenty-six percent of his body weight. Other winners included Tom Hedden of Edinburg, Robert Yoder of Taylorville, Nicole Heimsness of Taylorville, and John Blakeman of Taylorville.
This summers event will have it’s sign up and weigh in on May 8th from 6AM until 6PM with an informational meeting that evening for newcomers at 6pm. TMH Dietitian, Janelle Cornell wants to make sure newcomers come to the fourth floor of TMH to weigh in.
Contestants may earn prizes up to one-thousand dollars for their team winning and up to one-thousand dollars for individual losses. Cornell says that while the prizes are great, losing the weight is the biggest prize of them all.
Individuals can come with a team already or be assigned a team when they sign up. Cornell wants to make sure that everyone understands they don’t need to show up with a team already.
The Christian County YMCA will partner with TMH for this next challenge. Participants of the YMCA don’t have to pay sign-up fees. If you have participated before the sign-up fee is ten dollars and twenty-five if you haven’t.
