Baptist, Kroc Center offer incentive to lose weight during holidays

Baptist and the Salvation Army Kroc Center have teamed up once again to offer Aim to Maintain, a program designed to help keep off the pounds during the holidays. You could win one of 32 prizes, and to participate, you only need to pay $5 and attend two weigh ins: one on Nov.20-23, and one on Jan. 2-5.
