Weight Loss, Quit Smoking Programs Offered Locally
With the New Year come those resolutions. Love them or hate them, these annual promises help keep us moving down the path of self improvement. So if your 2015 list includes better health, there a couple of Lake County programs which kick off next week that could help. But hurry, registration will be closing soon.
Get The Lead Out (GTLO) is an annual program which promotes healthy eating, fitness and weight loss. New this year is Get The Tar Out (GTTO), a quit smoking program. Both programs are sponsored by Lake County Public Health Agency (LCPHA) and Lake County Build A Generation.
Running simultaneously, the competitions will include educational workshops. Participants will also be eligible for fun incentives and rewards, plus many healthy activities to join in while making this positive step! The opening event will be held Tuesday, Jan. 6 from 6 -8 p.m. at the Library Amax Room.
The 4th annual GTLO and GTTO will run for six weeks, from January 6 – February. Please note that there have been some changes in this year’s GTLO, including no teams; only individuals can register for the competition. This will allow participants to focus on long-term well being on an individual basis.
Deadline for registration is next Monday, Jan. 5. The cost is $20 per person and participants can choose one competition.
Registration for both events is at LCPHA, Monday thru Friday 8 a.m. – 6 p.m. Participants must pay at time of registration. First come, first served for registration, once the limit has been reached, registration will be closed. There will not be any registration at the opening event.
