Stop the Madness National, Inc., Mt. Canaan Baptist Church and Media Diva/fitness expert, Donna Elle, have joined together to bring the “It Matters Wellness and Weight Loss Challenge” initiative to the Chattanooga area. This health initiative is a comprehensive program with a specific focus on building healthy communities and a culture to promote and support lifelong healthy habits. The challenge is designed to encourage individuals on ways to manage stress, make healthy food/beverage choices and find ways to include physical (even fun) activity into a person’s daily routine.
The challenge will begin on March 9 and will include a weight-loss component the first 13-weeks. The weight-loss component will end on June 8. However, the wellness/health component will continue on through the end of 2013. Events will include:
Registration: Saturday, March 2, from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. at “The Venue” @ TN Temple University, 801 Orchard Knob Avenue
Kickoff and Initial Weigh March 9, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. at “The Venue” @ TN Temple University, 801 Orchard Knob Avenue
