Weight Loss Challenge returns!
Need some motivation to finally work on losing some of that pesky winter weight gain so many of us experience while supporting a great cause at the same time? Here is your chance! Jesup Elementary will be doing a 12 week healthy challenge. Anyone is welcome!

The Challenge:

You will only weigh in two times. Once at the beginning and once at the end of the 12 weeks. Weight loss will be determined by the percentage loss as this makes it fair for everyone. (Weigh out weight subtracted from weigh in weight then divide that number by initial starting weight. Take that number and multiply it by 100 and you get your weight loss percentage.)


$25.00 due at weigh in (Checks made out to Jesup Elementary)


The Challenge will run from January 10 – April 4. Discreet weigh-in will be in the Nurse’s Office:

Thursday, January 10: 7:00 a.m.-8:00 a.m. & 3:30 p.m.-4:00 p.m.

Friday, January 11: 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 a.m. & 8:15 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. (may have to wait a bit for an opening as student needs during the school day will come first.)

Contact school Nurse Christy VanBrocklin to inquire about scheduling a different time. 827-1700 EXT #6.

Weigh-out will be Thursday, April 4.

The Motivation:

Of course, a few less pounds is awesome motivation! However, sometimes a little “extra” motivation is needed. The 1st Place challenge winner will receive 40% of all registration proceeds. The 2nd Place Challenge winner will receive 15% of all registration proceeds. The 3rd Place challenge winner will receive 5% of all registration proceeds. Jesup Elementary will receive 40% of the registration proceeds which will be used to pay for playground upkeep and purchases.

Contact Christy VanBrocklin, School Nurse, for more information. 827-1700 EXT#6 or email at cvanbrocklin@jesup.k12.ia.us

*If at least 20 participants do not register, we will return any received payments and not proceed with this challenge.
