If your running goal involves loosing pounds and you are looking for that extra bit of motivation to get out the door during these final weeks of winter, consider joining the “Pound for Pound Challenge” affiliated with the popular NBC show the Biggest Loser: Couples edition and help end hunger in America.

How does it work?

The Pound for Pound Challenge will donate 11 cents to Feeding America® for every pound you pledge to lose (for a maximum donation of $1,040,000).  Read more here.

Where does the money go?

Feeding America® will team up with a local food bank and use each “11 cents” (earned per pound pledged) to secure up to 1 pound of groceries.  Hence the name “Pound for Pound Challenge”!

So far 100,054 Americans have pledged to loose 2,650,059 pounds, for an average of 26 pounds per person.  For up to date statistics click here.
