Many Kewaunee County residents will have see their commitments pay off this weekend as the Freeze the Gain challenge comes to a close. The 6-week program was offered by the Algoma Area Chamber of Commerce and promoted several healthy living habits, such as stress relief and eating healthier. Jody Anderson, community nurse activator at Bellin Health, said the focus of the challenge was not just to lose weight, but to improve one's well-being.
This year's version of the challenge saw the news spread all the way across Kewaunee County, with residents from Algoma, Kewaunee, Luxemburg, and Casco all participating in the activities. Final weigh-outs started Friday, January 11th.
