Our Annual Events & Community Programs
Lighten Up East Texas
Every January, our annual weight loss challenge opens, so that anyone over the age of 18 who enters and loses 5% of their weight will have a chance to win one of our fabulous prizes.
More than 6,000 individuals have worked to lose more than 52,000 pounds since 2012, and we are excited to assist even more East Texans to achieve their goals.
