Weight Loss Challenge Winners Announced

John Thompson, having dropped 11 percent of his body mass, is the winner of Brenau’s 2016 Weight Loss Challenge.

He credits his weight loss to both healthier eating and a rigorous daily workout. Throughout the competition, he completed 706,281 steps – which evens out to nearly five miles a day.

Thompson’s reward was $500. Second-place finisher Brooke Pattillo (10 percent body mass loss) received $110 and third-place finisher Nichole Rawlings (8 percent body mass loss) received $50.

Forty Brenau employees participated in this year’s event. If you have any suggestions or recommendations for next year’s program, please contact Kelley Maddox at kmaddox@brenau.edu.
