Region 8 Women’s Program announces winners
Nina Bellinger, a health care associate at the state Department of Health, and Pamela August, a management specialist at the state Office of Temporary and Disability Assistance, were the winners of the Region 8 Women’s “Turtle” program, each taking home $50 for losing the highest percentage of weight from the final spring weigh-out through the first day of the Holiday Lose To Win Program.
September 11 marked the beginning of the 15-week holiday program and 21 PEF members from Region 8 signed up.
PEF Region 8 Women’s Program Chair Linda Baker said, “This program keeps growing as the number of people who want to become healthier increases. It provides support, camaraderie and good nutritional advice all in a setting of non-judgmental competition. The final holiday weigh-out will be December 18, and we wish all the participants a slimming outcome.” — Deborah Miles
