Holiday weight challenge: Maintain and possibly win $12,000
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Gaining weight during the holidays seems like a forgone conclusion, but Healthy Wage is hoping money on the line will keep you from packing on the pounds this year.
Dave Roddenberry, co-founder of Healthy Wage, says their Holiday Stay Strong Challenge will award $12,256 to one random winner who maintains their weight over five weeks.
The contest is free to enter. Participants sign up by tapping here. They must submit video weigh ins twice between Nov. 22 -Nov. 28 to start, and Dec. 20 - Dec. 26 to end the challenge. Those who take the challenge must also type in weekly weigh-ins, no video required.
If challenge takers stay show no more than 2% weight gain, or lose any weight during the five-week challenge period, they are considered for the grand prize of $12,256.
Roddenberry says studies show financial incentives, or gamification, provide big motivation to stay on track with your weight.
Healthy Wage has given out more than $6 million to losers in 2021, alone, and $55 million since its inception -- with the $12,256 grand prize in the Holiday Stay Strong Challenge representing $1 for every HealthyWage winner since 2020.
