Some common New Year's resolutions are to lose weight, live healthier, and do more for charity, so I'm trying to combine all these resolutions into one event.
The 2014 Callahan Slim Down Showdown.
Our objective is to combine responsible weight loss and charitable giving. We will accomplish this by finding sponsors to make donations per pound of weight lost. Therefore, if you can find a sponsor to agree to make a $5.00 per/lb donation and you lose 10lbs you have just raised $50.00. The event will start January 1, 2014 and end January 31, 2014. Our initial weigh-in will be Tuesday December 31, 2013 and we will have weekly weigh-ins for the duration of the month. The idea isn't to just lose weight but to do it responsibly, so please take all necessary precautions.
Ideally we would like to get somewhere in the range of $1.00-$10.00 per pound but we'll obviously be grateful for anything. All donations will go to Unicef, if you are not familiar with their work please take a moment to look over their website.
Please help us by joining our team or becoming a sponsor.
