Today is final day for 2019 Fitness Challenge

Registration ends today for the Tribune Chronicle / Mercy Health 2019 Fitness Challenge community weight loss competition.

The five-player teams that lose the greatest percentage of their starting weights over eight weeks earn the largest shares of prize money to donate to area nonprofit service organizations of their choice.

New this year for the 18th annual Fitness Challenge is two divisions — Dynamo if three or more members finished in a top five team in the last five years; Go-Getters if not.

Entry fee is $250 a team, with a $50 nonrefundable deposit due by today’s registration deadline. The initial weigh-in is Thursday and weigh-ins continue weekly through March 14.
