Paterson Weight Loss Challenge
Lose 170,000 Lbs City-Wide
The Challenge is a free campaign supported by the city, businesses, civic groups, friends and families teaming up to help reverse the epidemic of excess weight and create a culture of healthier living. We are encouraging citizens to come together and take control of their health by getting fit, losing excess weight and turning back the deadly toll of weight-related diseases that threaten nearly half of all Americans.
Our obesity campaign effort is to spread the word and open up a community-wide dialogue about the dangers of being overweight. Individuals, families, friends, corporations, churches, local organizations, community groups, sports teams, police departments, fire departments and schools are all welcome to join!!
Below are just a few of the many things we hope participants can accomplish as the Challenge continues to grow:
Shed excess pounds, achieve healthier weights, and reduce the risk for life-threatening diseases.
Unite as a community and pool strength and resources to overcome the health problems that afflict us.
Learn more about our bodies and how to live healthier and longer lives.Teach youth about the importance of making healthy lifestyle decisions that will benefit them for years to come
