Healthy Savannah weight loss challenge

SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

After the Savannah Bridge run on Saturday morning, there was a celebration at Forsyth Park to recognize more than 6 thousand pounds being lost in a 10-week Healthy Savannah, lean-community-wide fitness and weight loss challenge.

A total of 1,484 people, 18 years and older, created 274 teams, all of whom have positively impacted their health through this weight loss. The event was free, and Healthy Savannah hopes to keep it that way, but they do need the community's support.

"We just need local companies and businesses and organizations to partner with us so that we can continue to offer this great event and get people healthy in Savannah," said Joel Smoker, volunteer Board Chairman for Healthy Savannah.

Look for another Healthy Savannah Lean Challenge in 2014.
