Friday marked the finish of the 2011 Live Healthy Greenville-Pitt (LHGP) 100-Day Challenge presented by the Chamber, Live Healthy America, Physicians East, BlueCross and Blue Shield of NC and University Health Systems of Eastern Carolina. More than 1,200 participants lost 5,748 pounds, and logged about 70,517 hours of activity from January 21 to April 29. 

“Part of our mission is to enhance the quality of life in our community,” said Chamber President Susanne Sartelle.  “After seeing our community lose more than 5,700 pounds, I think the participants became conscious of the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle.”

More than 60 of the Live Healthy Greenville-Pitt participants culminated this year’s 100-day challenge by participating in the Live Healthy Greenville-Pitt 5K Run/Walk, presented by Attends Healthcare, on Sunday at the Town Common. 

After the race, Team Inquiring Minds was recognized as the team with the most weight loss (8.79 percent) during the 100-day challenge.  In addition, Team People Committed More to Health (PCMH) was recognized for logging the most average activity hours (213 hrs). 

LHGP is a 100-day, team-based weight loss and physical activity program that helps participants make positive changes that lead to a healthier lifestyle through increased physical activity and improved nutrition. Co-workers form teams that track weight-loss and/or minutes of activity during the challenge, by reporting their progress on a weekly basis at www.livehealthygreenville-pitt.org. Teams consisted of 2-10 people with a team captain and a team name.
