This is a fun and unique group for people who would like to lose weight, have more energy, or just get healthier while helping raise money for charity!

A SHRINK-A-Thon is like a “walk-a-thon”, but instead of "walking" participants shed excess pounds for charity. Instead of raising pledges for every kilometer we walk, we will be sponsored for every pound or inch we lose! We all know many worthy causes in need of financial support. Also, many of us recognize the need to shed a few pounds, gain a little more energy, or just generally get healthier. The SHRINK-A-Thon combines these two needs, and thus creates a powerful win-win situation (or more like a "lose"-win). Group support will be the key as we all work together toward the same goal of a healthier lifestyle and have fun in the process while raising money for charity. Everyone benefits! We will be learning about science-based techniques based on Dr. Strand’s Healthy for Life program. Clinical trials done under the guidelines of the FDA found that participants can expect to shrink their waistlines and gain more energy. Furthermore, these clinical trials found that participants also had improved blood sugar, insulin sensitivity, triglycerides, cholesterol, and blood pressure. All teams will be led by certified Dr. Strand coaches.

We are currently putting together teams in the Lower Mainland area and are looking for the following people:
1) Participants who would like to shed excess pounds for charity
2) Volunteers to help lead a team or provide extra support for this great cause

If you would like to learn more about how this all works, please RSVP for one of the upcoming meetups! Our website is now up and running so you can also visit us at www.Vancouver.ShrinkAThon.com
