JEWETT – Seventeen participants in a local “Biggest Loser” contest lost a combined total of 224 pounds during the three-month contest.
Organizer Elizabeth Brooks said it initially began four years ago while working in the Harrison Hills City School District and evolved into a community challenge and has attracted participants from Jewett, Cadiz, Scio and as far as Rayland.
Top “losers” included Tammy Harris, Brooks and John Coulson. Pictured are, front from left, Mike Harris, Tammy Harris and Trisha Largent. Middle: Amy Tullis, Linda Ager and Janet Walters. Back: Greg Tullis and Brooks.
