Keller Wellcare Center to Kick Off Scale Back Alabama

December 29, 2014

Sheffield, Ala. - Again this year, the Keller Wellcare Center will host the Scale Back Alabama program. Scale Back Alabama is a free, statewide weight-loss program designed to help Alabama's adults eat less and move more. Over the past 8 years, the contest has resulted in a statewide weight loss of more than 1 million pounds and the starts of thousands of healthy habits.

The rules are simple. Teams are comprised of 2 adults (ages 18 and older). All individuals and teams that lose at least 10 pounds are entered into the final drawing for cash prizes. Prizes will be announced on April 24. All teams on which both members lose at least 10 pounds will be entered into a Grand Prize Drawing. Three teams will get $1000 per team member, three will get $500 per team member, and three will get $250 per team member. Individual prizes will be given to individuals who lose at least 10 pounds, regardless of the other team member's loss. There will be 40- $100 cash prizes for individuals.

Scale Back Alabama begins in January and lasts 10 weeks. The initial weigh-in week is January 19-25. Contact the Keller Wellcare Center at (256) 386-4747 for more information or to schedule a weigh-in time.
