Are you ready for a worthy Challenge? Join my team: Lakeshore!
Join team Lakeshore as we take on the Pound For Pound Challenge!
(even if you don’t want to lose weight, you can still help!)
For the third consecutive year, Feeding America and NBC’s The Biggest Loser will partner with General Mills and Subway to encourage Americans to lose weight through the Pound For Pound Challenge. For every pound pledged, the Pound For Pound Challenge will donate 11 cents to Feeding America, up to a maximum donation of $1,040,000. Feeding America will then distribute the money to the local food banks chosen by consumers at registration. We are donating to Second Harvest Food Bank.
My team name is Lakeshore
You choose the number of pounds you want to pledge to lose, or if you’re already at a healthy weight, you can still join our team, pledge to take action to maintain a healthy weight, and help us earn more donations to feed the hungry. If you have any questions, please be in touch! I’m really excited for the journey our team will be taking on, together.
Currently, the demand for emergency food assistance is up 40% in Davidson county alone. An appalling, 1 in 5 children in Middle Tennessee live in households without consistent access to food. In total, 1 in 6 people in our 46 county service area are at risk of hunger. In the 2008-2009 year, Second Harvest served over 600,000 people and distributed over 39 million meals.
Thank you for your support! – Hether Crawford
