‘Biggest Loser’ sought
The Town of Tunica kicks off a 20-week “Tunica’s Biggest Loser” contest next week, with bragging rights and a cash award in the balance.
Mayor Chuck Cariker announced the initiative at last week’s town Board meeting. Tunica Main Street is helping to promote the event, and Cariker said he believed a sponsor would be on board by the kick-off.
“Other communities have done this, and it’s very popular,” Cariker said. “It’s part of a push in Mississippi for a more healthy lifestyle for all our citizens.”
The contest begins Tuesday, February 18, and ends July 4th with an announcement of the winner at the town’s Independence Day Parade and Picnic. Participant pay a $20 fee to enter, which becomes part of the winner’s “pot.”
