WHAT IS IT?
Florence's BIGGEST LOSER is a 10 week competition sponsored by the United Way of Florence County's Burn and Learn Initiative that provides fitness training, nutrition, accountability, and other fun activities to individuals that want to lose weight and/or make healthy lifestyle changes. In the five years that the competition has been held, 347 contestants have lost over 6,140 pounds. Along with helping the community get healthier, Florence’s Biggest Loser also serves as a fundraiser and any money raised by the competition is added to the United Way’s annual campaign.

The contestant who receives the most votes ($1=1 vote) from the public at the end of the 10 week competition will receive the 2019 Fan-Favorite Award and win a six month gym membership courtesy of McLeod Health and Fitness Center.
