Think about it this way: The winners of this contest had to focus on losing before they could gain (a prize).
An impressive number of the employees who participated in Canyons District’s “Maintain, Don’t Gain” wellness program successfully battled the bulge over the holidays.
In all, 653 CSD employees signed up to participate and weighed in right before the Thanksgiving break. For the final weigh-in, which was conducted immediately after the winter recess, 544 of those employees stepped on the scale to find out whether they lost or maintained weight from November to January.
A whopping 73 percent of those employees logged the same weight or shed a few pounds, according to the District’s Insurance Office, which sponsored the “Maintain, Don’t Gain” contest. Those who qualified were entered into a drawing for some fantastic prizes.
The drawing was held Friday, Jan. 6, and below is a list of the winners.
Winners can contact the District’s Insurance Office at 801-826-5428 to collect their prizes.
