Registration now open for 2019 Lean on the Lakeshore Challenge.

Registration is now open for Lean on the Lakeshore, a community-wide weight loss challenge presented by Holy Family Memorial starting January 2. The 100-day challenge is back to encourage area residents achieve a healthier lifestyle and to get more people active in the community.

“For many people, the start of a new year also comes with a goal to shed a few pounds,” says Joni Shavlik, a personal trainer at HFM Wellness Center. “Lean on the Lakeshore is perfect for individuals who are interested in incorporating healthy habits such as healthy eating and physical activity into their routines.”

Individuals must be 18 years or older and live or work in Manitowoc County to participate in the challenge. For a $50 participant fee, individuals receive access to over 100 activities and an online tracking program. At the end of the challenge, a $500 grand prize will be awarded to the top male and female participant with the highest percentage of weight loss, and a $250 and $100 prize will also be awarded to second and third place winners. In addition, all the winners will receive a 12-month gym membership and prizes will be given to the top teams.
