Community Education to sponsor community weight-loss challenge

Melissa Beaudry, a wellness coach who has lost 55 pounds and kept it off, will lead a community weight-loss challenge through District 728 Community Education.

Registration, which costs $55 for an individual or $105 for a pair, are being taken for the eight-week class that will run on Tuesdays from 6:30 to 7:45 p.m. starting on Jan. 17 in room 208 of Handke Center.

There will be a cash prize for the winner of the challenge. Weekly classes are expected to be motivating, inspiring and informative in the hope of teaching participants how to successfully lose weight and keep it off.
