2020 Weight Loss Challenge

Need a New Year’s Resolution? Brenau’s annual Weight Loss Challenge will begin January 2020! At the end of the challenge, the employee who lost the highest percentage of weight will win a cash prize of $250. (No entry fee required to participate).

Initial weigh-in:
Jan. 6, 7, 8

Mid weigh-in:
Feb. 5, 6, 7 (The participant who is leading at this point will receive a prize).

All weigh-ins will be performed in the Human Resources Office. Email Kelley Maddox at ude.uanerb@xoddamk to schedule an appointment. It is preferable to weigh-in on the last day.
