Ready for a friendly competition….or willing to challenge yourself?
It’s FEBRUARY - the holidays, Superbowl and now Valentine’s Day will be over. Our New Year’s resolutions may have come and gone.
THEREFORE, it is time for….
THE MORAN WEIGHT LOSS CHALLENGE!
In the spirit of good health and fitness, we are challenging ALL our employees to join this competition for the next eight weeks.
Whether it is 5 pounds or 50 you want to lose….challenge yourself to better health.
It is much more fun and enjoyable to be part of a group - our Moran Challenge Team.
We are all working toward the same goal – our good health.
EVERYONE is welcome to JOIN THE TEAM!
Here are the basic facts – additional details are on the attached enrollment form:
The competition is based on the percentage of body weight lost, NOT the number of pounds lost.
Competition begins Friday, February 22 with our initial CONFIDENTIAL weigh-in.
Eight weeks later the competition ends with the final weigh-in on Friday, April 19 – in time to enjoy a chocolate Easter egg or two!
Every Friday is a weigh-in. A gift card will be awarded for the 2-week highest percentage of weight loss on Friday March 8, March 22 and April 5 … before the final weigh in on Friday April 19.
All weigh-ins are strictly confidential – only your weigh-in partner and I will know your weigh-in numbers.
If you are out of the office or with a smaller group you may still participate. Send your weight to me on Fridays or email a photo of your feet on your scale to Betsy.firstname.lastname@example.org.
You will receive “challenge updates” every two weeks - emails with our individual percentages of weight loss – along with weight loss tips and healthy lifestyle suggestions. Keep an eye out good articles, suggestions and ideas to send to the team.
We can have company challenges. Which company can lose the HIGHEST percentage of body weight? Encourage others in your company to join and have a COMPANY TEAM!
Cost is $10 to join the CHALLENGE. Other fees are incurred if you miss a weigh-in or gain a pound or more – hope not!
All money collected becomes the prize money for the two Grand Prize winners…one man and one woman.
To enroll, please sign the bottom of the attached memo and return to: email@example.com with cash or a $10 check to Armon.
See the attached information for ALL the details of the competition.
JOIN THE “CHALLENGE TEAM” and join the fun…
ALL FOR OUR GOOD HEALTH!
