TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

 If you want to get in shape after the holidays, why not sign up for a program that gives you a chance to lose weight, fight cancer, and win money?

Teams of at least four people will battle it out for 12 weeks. Whichever team loses the largest percentage of weight wins a cash prize!

Half of the money goes to winners. The other half goes to relay for life.

"One thing that people always ask is are people going to see my weight, and the answer of course is no, its nothing like people see on TV. Everything is kept confidential, nothing to worry about,"  said TBL Volunteer Sommer Dunston.

The weight loss challenge kicks off on January 7th.
