Apple Valley, CA – February 6, 2020: Need a bit of encouragement to keep on those new year resolutions? You still have time to join more than 200 other participants in the Mayor’s Weight Loss Challenge for a healthy, social and fun start in 2020.


The Town kicked off the Challenge this past Tuesday where contestants had the opportunity to weigh-in, take their blood pressure and join Mayor Scott Nassif as he helped lead this year’s healthy heart edition.


“We had a great turnout and want to encourage even more people to join the 200 contestants who have already signed up,” said Nassif.


Two additional weigh-in opportunities have been added on Tuesday, February 11 from 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. and Wednesday, February 12, from 7:30 a.m. – 9:00 a.m. and from 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. inside the Recreation Center at Town Hall.


Online registration has also been extended and will remain open until Thursday, February 13.


The final opportunity to join the Challenge is the morning of the Sweetheart Walk and Run at Civic Center Park on Saturday, February 15. Weigh-ins will take place at 9:00 a.m., before the event starts at 10:00. This will be the last opportunity for participants to weigh-in in order to join the Challenge.


Challenge participants can participate in the Sweetheart Walk and Run free of charge.


A Facebook group will keep members on track for monthly weigh-ins, upcoming events, and healthy recipes to try. Among other scheduled activities, members are invited to try out lap swimming for free at the Town’s Aquatic Center, and several participants will have the chance to win monthly passes for lap swimming and water fitness classes.
