Joliet is 1,220 pounds lighter following the Joliet Park District’s “Donate Your Weight” challenge to benefit the Northern Illinois Food Bank. This year marked the highest rate of return. Seventy-nine percent of participants who weighed-in at Inwood Athletic Club or Nowell Park six weeks ago, weighed out the last two days.
The top male is Arsantae Jackson who lost 10.73% of his body weight while the top female is Eve Wiseniewski who lost 14.69% of her body weight. Each will receive one year of a free gym membership.
