Dump Your Plump Registration

Partnership for a Healthier Johnson County invites teams from the community and surrounding areas to participate in the 30th round of Dump Your Plump, a nationally recognized workplace and family wellness/exercise program featuring peer support and team competition.

It’s easy to compete!  Teams of 4-10 participants commit to exercise any place, any time for at least 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week and set a realistic weight loss goal between 0-20 pounds.  A designated team captain submits a weekly weigh-in and exercise team report to the Partnership office.  Cost is $10 per person.  Captains participate free.

Partnership has previously coordinated 29 rounds of this 10-week, worksite and family wellness/exercise program with great success.  The objective of Dump Your Plump is to provide a short-term, fun means for safe and gradual weight loss through proper exercise and nutrition.  Participants are eligible to win weekly $$ prizes and a $1,000 Team Grand Prize.  We have lots of fun surprises planned to celebrate 30 rounds of successful weight loss and healthier lifestyles.  Hurry, register a team between now and January 23.  Round 30 begins on January 25 and runs through April 4.

Contact Partnership for a Healthier Johnson County at (317) 736-2657 for more information or register a team at www.healthierjc.org
