If you’re looking to get healthy and maybe lose some weight — why not make some money doing it?
The cash prize offered for the winning team in the Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce’s Biggest Loser Community Challenge just doubled.
Jeff Shelton, general manager of Sulphur Springs Dodge, pledged Thursday morning to match the $1,000 prize offered by the chamber. That brings the prize money to $2,000 for the winning four-person team.
Chamber President and CEO Meredith Caddell is hoping other businesses will follow suit in giving county residents an even larger incentive to get healthy.
