If you are like most, you probably gained a few pounds through the holidays. Could you use some motivation to help you get fit? Might a chance to win cash or take part in fun competition do the trick?
If so, here is a wonderful opportunity for you! Get Fit Lake City, a health initiative founded by Altrusa of Lake City, is beginning this year’s new 16-week challenge January 7th! The campaign includes a Kick-Off Breakfast, The Biggest Loser Competition, The Corporate Cup, The Fittest School, a midway 2K Walk/Run, and a grand finale–a “Color” 5K Walk/Run!
The complimentary Kick-Off Breakfast is Jan. 7th at the Fairgrounds Banquet Hall. Doors open at 7:45 am, and breakfast will begin at 8:30 am. Dr. Cherylle Hayes, Radiation Oncologist/Health Physics Specialist, will be the guest speaker for the event.
The Biggest Loser Competition begins with weigh-in at Company Care (2970 W US Hwy 90, #120) Jan. 7-8, 8am-5pm, and ends with a weigh-out at the same location April 28-29.
The Corporate Cup is an exciting new event this year for companies participating in Get Fit. On April 23rd, join your coworkers for half a day of crazy fun competitions including–but not limited to–tug-of-war against a Ford F-150, dodge ball round robin, egg toss, 100-yard dash, plunger challenge, hula hoop marathon, & corn hole challenge!
The Fittest School is a program designed to encourage Columbia County elementary students to get moving with The Mileage Club. Last year, a total of 2,448 students from ten elementary schools participated and walked/ran a collective 55,753 miles!
The grand finale is a “Color” 5K Walk/Run on Saturday, May 7th!
