So far, there are 50 workers involved, that's a total of 10 teams. Each team will weigh in every 2 weeks and track their weight loss online. Participants say it's a very fun way to get in the habit of exercising and eating healthy.
"It makes a little camaraderie for the employees at the county level and little competition never hurts," states Janis Goedeke, Crawford County Health Department Director.
The county's winning department will get a grand prize of $500. Anyone can get involved in the challenge. There is a guide on the Governor's Weight Loss Website. To view the website, click here.
