Tupelo will have a chance to Lighten Up to Live Well with a friendly weight loss challenge.
Teams of one to 10 people will come up with a name and will weigh in together between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. Jan. 16 through 18 at the NMMC Wellness Center in Tupelo. The registration fee is a donation of canned goods per team member to benefit a local food pantry.
At the conclusion of the challenge, the teams will weigh in again at the NMMC Wellness Center between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. March 26-28.
Participants are eligible for a variety of door prizes. The team that loses the highest percentage of weight will receive a plaque and get a hands-on cooking demonstration from a registered dietitian.
