Lose Weight for a Good Cause

A Loseathon is like a walkathon, but instead of walking a certain distance to raise money, the person loses a certain amount of weight. Loseathons have these added benefits:

  • donors end up with a friend who is healthier and happier.
  • it's harder to lose a sizable amount of weight than to do one walkathon so it's a bigger challenge for people to take on
  • people are more likely to succeed at losing weight if they have the support of loved ones. A Loseathon creates a cheering squad to encourage them
  • it's easier to lose weight if a person commits to it publicly because it adds accountability
  • it's easier to lose weight if it's about something bigger than just yourself, and it helps others
  • everyone benefits from the health system spending less money on diseases related to weight
