Weight Loss Food Drive
Monday, September 02, 2013
We at Fleet Feet just did a challenge in Rochester to Lose a Ton of Weight in 12 weeks. At the end of it, we celebrated with a party in the park where we offered a 2-mile hike, or yoga. We put out healthy snacks and water afterwards and honored the people with the highest percentage. All in all, we lost over 3600 pounds!
We asked everyone to come to the party with food for the local food bank to equal the pounds they lost. That was a huge hit! We had a few people who carried in 30 pounds of canned goods and passed it around to people saying "isn't it insane that I used to carry this on me and not in these bags!"
It was a great celebration, and when the food bank showed up to pick it up, it was a great moment to watch everyone see their old pounds finally put to good use!
