(KETK) - Tyler Tx — "Lighten up East Texas" is a five month regional competition that aims to curb the obesity problem we have here in Texas. For every five percent of body weight participants lose, they will receive a drawing entry for the grand prize.
Their goal is to have 5,210 entrants this year and beat the collective weight loss from last year which was 4,700 pounds.
KETK's Alexa Vogue chatted live with NET Health CEO, George Roberts, at Broadway Square Mall at the kick off.
