HOLLEY – The school district is inviting the community to participate in its third “Biggest Loser” contest. The event kicks off this evening at 6:30 p.m. with weigh-ins at the new Fitness Center located in the Elementary School.

There will also be a child/parent fitness challenge beginning at 6 p.m. The district will also provide a fitness seminar at 7 p.m.

The Biggest Loser will be picked based on percentage of weight loss over the following months. Last year’s winner, Connie Nenni, will speak at the kick off tonight.

Nenni, clerk for the school district, said she lost about 30 pounds over four months last year from February through June. She counted calories, committed to a walk/run routine and cut back on pasta, breads and potatoes.

“I tried different things before but wasn’t able to keep off the weight,” she said today.

Participants will be eligible for monthly prizes. There is no specific weight loss program to follow.

“Do it your way on your own time line,” the district advises.

There is no charge to participate. The contest is open to anyone who lives in or who works for the school district.
