Biggest Loser Speaker
Partnering with Growing Healthy Habits, the Orrville Area Chamber will coordinate local participation in "The Biggest Loser Community Challenge." The challenge is an opportunity for co-workers, friends and family members to commit to better health by offering fitness challenges, health and wellness guidance and access to interactive tools. In return, participants receive rewards for partaking in healthy activities.
Growing Healthy Habits and the Orrville Area Chamber of Commerce decided to bring the challenge even more locally by creating a speaker education series. This provides an opportunity for all of our local health facilities to showcase to the community what they have to offer, and in the process maybe participants of the challenge can find the right fit for them.
Thursday, March 31 from 6:45 to 7:45 p.m., the final local speaker for the Biggest Loser Challenge will present at Heartland Point, 200 North Main Street, in the Community Room downstairs. Becky Jewell and Jennifer Reusser will introduce participants to another easy and accessible form of exercise, biking and walking local trails. Jennifer and Becky are members of the Rails-to-Trails of Wayne County Board of Directors, and they will introduce participants to area rail trails. Learn what they are, why participants should use them, how to get started and where to find them. Be ready to walk and roll right into spring!
Biggest Loser participants are encouraged to join Orrville Walks the following week, on Thursday April 7. Check in at Heartland Point any time during their hours of operation 6:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. walk the designated loop or route of your choice and you will be registered in a raffle drawing. Orrville Walks is opening to anyone.
