Algoma residents looking to either lose weight or maintain their current weight are challenged to “Freeze the Gain” this winter. The six-week challenge holds a different theme each week and is designed to help participants keep the pounds off over the busy winter months by providing tips, tools and resources. Jody Anderson, a registered nurse and community nurse activator, outlined some of the ways the program would assist its participants.
Weigh-ins for the challenge will be held November 26th through the 30th. Those who do weigh-in are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item or toiletry to be donated to the Kewaunee County Food Pantry. There will be a prize drawing at the end of the challenge for those who turn their weigh-in cards back in.
