The Second Annual MPSD Biggest Loser Challenge came to an end on March 10, and we are proud to say that the total weight loss for our District during this eight week challenge was  over 350 pounds!


While our number of participants was less than last year, the discipline and dedication of the individuals who did participate was very apparent by the amount of weight loss. The total pot for this year’s Biggest Loser Challenge was $800!


A major congratulations to the 2017 MPSD Female Biggest Loser Kim Hill and 2017 MPSD Male Biggest Loser Paul Lester!!
