Join the 2018 Weight Loss Challenge

Need a New Year’s Resolution? Brenau’s annual Weight Loss Contest will begin January 2018! At the end of challenge, the employee who lost the biggest percentage of weight will win a cash prize of $500. There is no entry fee required to participate.

Initial weigh-ins will take place Jan. 3, 4 and 5. Halfway-point weight-ins will be Feb. 7, 8 and 9. The participant leading at this point will receive a prize. The final weigh-ins will be March 14, 15 and 16. The final winner will be determined by calculating the percentage of weight lost, and his or her name will be posted in the HR Newsletter.

All weigh-ins will be performed in the Human Resources Office. Email Kelley Maddox at kmaddox@brenau.edu to schedule an appointment. It is preferable to weigh-in on the last day. However, if you cannot make it that day, 2 other days are available, as outlined above. All information will be kept confidential.

Each participant will be required to weigh-in at all three weigh-in points to be eligible for prizes. Only dates listed above will be used as weigh-in dates. Employees from all campus are eligible to participate. Contact Kelley for more information if you are located at a site other than Gainesville and would like to participate.

Each participant will know where they placed in the rankings, and the names of participants will be shared within the group of participants. Each Friday the group will meet at 4:15 p.m. to walk the Brenau Mile on the Gainesville campus.

This is a voluntary program. Each participant will sign a participation agreement.

Employees are encouraged to use the facilities on campus, including the Brenau Fitness Center (free to all employees), the Brenau Mile and the Center for Health and Wellbeing. Also, please take advantage of our on-site Hopkins Dining Hall offering healthy eating options at a great price ($5.00 for employees).

1st place: $500 cash prize
2nd place: $130 cash prize
3rd place: $65 cash prize
Mid weigh-in: $50 cash prize
