H-E-B to Host 2014 Slim Down Showdown
H-E-B is inviting its customers to sign up for its 2014 Community Slim Down Showdown, a weight loss competition that offers a chance to win a $10,000 grand prize or a $5,000 health hero prize.
The grocer will select 15 people from around the state to compete in the 14-week contest. Each will travel to San Antonio to participate in an intensive, five-and-a-half day wellness program with experts from H-E-B, Gold’s Gym and Cooper Aerobics Center.
Now in its third year, H-E-B has redesigned the competition to encourage more robust support networks of family, friends and mentors to help contestants stay the course and make lasting lifestyle changes.
Upon returning home, contestants will receive coaching and support from past contestants and H-E-B Partners who have successfully adopted a healthy lifestyle. H-E-B will also select 15 Partners to compete in the company’s internal version of the Slim Down Showdown alongside the community competition, giving both sets of contestants an opportunity to meet and team up to strengthen their network of support.
All contestants must be willing to share their journey and inspire others by hosting healthy events in their hometowns and blogging about their experience.
San Antonio-based H-E-B operates more than 350 stores in Texas and Mexico.
