THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Folks in Thomasville hope a little friendly competition can promote weight loss and healthier lifestyles.

The Thomasville YMCA will kick off their 10-week Team Lean program Saturday morning.

Participants will weigh in and receive free health screenings.

The man and woman with the largest decreases in cholesterol levels will win $500.

Fitness Director Kim Smith said, “The team aspect is what makes it so different from everything else. You have that team rivalry.  You have those teammates calling you saying, 'Hey, how'd you do today?' You've got that support.  It just is a really fun event.”

The event begins at 8 a.m. at the Butler Mason YMCA.
