Scale Back Alabama

The Arc of Clarke County is participating in Scale Back Alabama 2013!

And will be a public weigh in station!

“Now in its seventh year, Scale Back Alabama is a statewide weight-loss contest that begins in January each year. The purpose of the 10-week contest is to help our state fight its challenge with obesity by encouraging Alabamians to lose weight, to exercise and to have fun while doing it. Last year’s campaign drew nearly 30,000 people in almost every county with a cumulative reported weight loss of 148,963 pounds.”

“There is NO CHARGE for participating in the program.”
