Brimfield COA hosting 'Biggest Loser' challenge

January 10, 2012
BRIMFIELD — Losing weight is a common New Year's resolution, but it is easier said than done.

Residents will soon get to see who is the most committed to those January diets, as the Brimfield Biggest Loser Weight Loss Challenge will begin next weekend. Co-sponsored by the First Congregational Church of Brimfield and the Council on Aging, this event will benefit the local food bank. The entry cost is $5 for each participant.

"To keep people motivated throughout the challenge, we will be offering the opportunity to bring in a canned item for every pound lost," said Gina Lynch, the director of the Brimfield Council on Aging (BCOA) and organizer of the weight loss challenge. "We also have a rule where participants who gain a pound or two will have to donate $1 to charity."
