The Charles & Barbara Duboc Cardio Health & Wellness Center (CWC) at Saint Luke’s is sponsoring its 10th Annual Weight Loss Competition (WLC). It is open to everyone—employees, patients, visitors, friends, and family (WLC Champions are not eligible to participate). The initial weigh-ins will take place February 5–9, 2018.
This is a weight loss competition with both women’s and men’s individual categories. The person in each category who has the greatest percent reduction in weight will win 75 percent of the pot (money), second place in each category receives 15 percent, and third place receives 10 percent. Each participant contributes $35 for registration—or, if registering with a partner, the fee is $50 for both. The money will be used for prize winnings, so the more who register, the bigger the prize amount. $5 of the registration fee goes towards administrative costs.
Did you know: The 2017 female winner won more than $3,900!
Initial weigh-in dates are February 5–9 and the final weigh-in will be April 30-May 4.
View flier for more information and view dates for monthly weigh-ins in March and April. Monthly weigh-ins are encouraged but not mandatory. Historically, all winners happened to come in for monthly weigh-ins. The coordinators are there to encourage each person.
Weight Loss Champions will be available to register you at each Saint Luke’s site—Saint Luke’s Hospital of Kansas City, Saint Luke’s North Hospital, Saint Luke’s South Hospital, Saint Luke’s East Hospital, Saint Luke’s Cushing Hospital, Saint Luke’s Convenient Care Clinics, Saint Luke’s Anderson County Hospital, some area Hy-Vee grocery stories, and private companies.
To participate with private companies, you will need to be an employee with that company. These are Saint Luke’s Corporate office, Grandview School District, City of Kansas City Employees, MRI Global, and Stinson Leonard Street, LLP.
Your weight will be entered in a database that is available to only a select few people, and it will be entered with a set of numbers and not your name, so this will be highly confidential.
