Healthy dose of fun

Getting fit has never been more fun.

Kin’s Farm Market is putting the call out for contestants for its second annual Kin’s Green Fighters competition.

Twelve contestants – one from each of 12 different Lower Mainland communities, including South Surrey/White Rock – will compete in eight different challenges designed to improve their overall health, during an eight-week period.

The contestant deemed to have improved his or her health the most at the end of the eight-week challenge will be declared the winner, and will receive a grand prize worth in excess of $1,400.

Of course, everyone who participates automatically wins, and not just through living a healthier lifestyle.

Those chosen as contestants will receive more than $600 in resources to help achieve their goals. There is also more than $400 in prizes to be won throughout the challenge.

The program runs from March 31 to June 14. Contestants will be responsible for a weekly blog entry, and must be willing to share photos publicly, through different media outlets.

Most of all, contestants must be willing and committed to improving their eating and exercise habits.

So, ask yourself, what have you got to lose? If the answer is “a few extra pounds”, don’t just think about it, enter to be a contestant in the Kin’s Farm Market 2014 Green Fighters competition.

Entries must be received by Sunday, March 23. Enter online at
