Heart fund continues fight in war on weight

| 20/08/2012

istock_fatscales.jpg(Cayman Heart Fund): The Cayman Heart Fund War on Weight kickoff event was held at Full of Beans on Thursday, August 16, 2012.  The annual War on Weight challenge, also known as the WOW challenge, is funded by the Cayman Heart Fund, a non-profit organization dedicated to the reduction of heart and circulatory disease in the Cayman Islands. Every year the challenge battles Cayman's bulge and transforms the lifestyles of its lucky contestants.  War on Weight has helped over 40 contestants lose over 1,000 pounds and learn the essentials to a permanent healthy lifestyle since its launch in 2008.

The WOW program educates participants on diet and fitness, and most importantly instils the disciplines to maintain weight loss after completing the program. Past contestants have continued to steadily lose more weight with the skills obtained in the program.

War on Weight normally runs from late August up until a finale celebration in mid-December each year. During the sixteen-week contest, participants are committed to obtaining optimal results by dedicating at least eight hours a week to compulsory exercise, meetings, bi-weekly consultations with a dietician, health screening, blood testing and monitoring by physicians and, group counselling sessions by an approved professional.

This year’s lucky contestants are: Delocita Pope, Sheredan Coulburn, Sandra Catron, Sheryl Harris, Shakira Diaz, Maritza Taylor, Sarah Chambers, Salema Solomon, Raquel Solomon & Orlando Mason.
Cayman Heart Fund would like to congratulate the 2012 contestants and wish them good luck.
