via the Start R.I.G.H.T. Committee and CNN

Happy Tuesday Everyone! We stumbled across a great article today on CNN about a family that won $10,000 in a Fitness Challenge. ( You can read the article below.) The article says, “Last year, a Mayo Clinic study found people who received financial incentives stuck with healthy behaviors longer — losing, on average, seven more pounds than their colleagues whose wallets weren’t linked to weight loss.”

Did you know the Start R.I.G.H.T. Challenge offers three monetary prizes for our winners! If you weren’t able to compete last year, make sure to sign – up this year. The Challenge will be going through some changes to better meet the needs of the community and participants. The best way to stay up-to-date on the Challenge is to sign up for our E-Mail Newsletter/Updates.
