The Challenge is another bright idea from your friends at The Paper of Montgomery County! This time, The Paper, Athena Sport & Fitness and Franciscan St. Elizabeth Health are partnering to raise money for the Montgomery County Boys & Girls Club through the Montgomery United Fund For You, or what it's commonly known by, MUFFY. Here's the way it works.
There are 16 local leaders who have volunteered to take on The Challenge. They will take part in a 10-week program through Athena Sport & Fitness with the goal of losing weight and getting more fit. Each of the 16 are also trying to get sponsorships from people and groups so that the more weight they lose, the more MUFFY makes!
Of course what would a Challenge be without a goal, right? So the winner -- that is the person who loses the largest amount of weight (by body percentage) will win $500 that they could use for a trip to a warm beach and the opportunity to add a few calories back with an umbrella drink or two!
That's where you can come in! To follow The Challenge, keep reading The Paper of Montgomery County and checking our website. If you want to learn more about these fine individuals, just click on the Challenge banner and then click on their name.
