Team challenge Northwest Colorado Health Weigh and Win starts Feb. 1
Weigh and Win is a free community program aimed at reducing obesity rates in Colorado. It provides cash incentives to individuals who reach their weight loss goals.
Participants weigh in every 90 days at a kiosk located in the lobby of Northwest Colorado Health, 745 Russell Street. The kiosk is open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Participants can receive daily emails or texts with tips about nutrition, exercise and overcoming barriers. A Weigh and Win Team Challenge, set for Feb. 1 through April 30, encourages groups of four to eight people to pool their efforts and compete for prizes. Enroll in Weigh and Win at the kiosk or at weighandwin.com. For more information, visit northwestcoloradohealth.org/weighandwin.
