Aim to Maintain Prize Winners for 2023 Holiday Season

Congratulations to the Aim to Maintain prize winners, and everyone who participated in the fitness classes over the 2023 holiday season, from Thanksgiving week until Dec. 31! The Kroc Center Memphis and Baptist Memorial Health Care collaborated to provide six weeks of classes and workshops, plus videos, fitness tips and prizes, for Aim to Maintain, which is designed to help participants maintain healthy habits over the holiday season and beyond.

“I’ve participated in Aim to Maintain for the past three years. I find that it helps me stay focused on maintaining my weight during the holidays,” said Peggy Sparrenberger, advanced nurse clinician at Baptist Memorial Hospital-DeSoto. “I was thrilled to learn I won the Lululemon gift card.”

Aim to Maintain had 28 completed goal sheets (calendars) submitted and 1,674 entries counted, with 1,476 entries for classes, workouts and bonus entries for focus weeks, and 198 entries for Facebook interactions. There were 69 new members on the community space on Facebook.
