Grand Health Challenge 2023

Back again this year, new and improved, The Grand Health Challenge sponsored by Grand Lake Health Systems is a program for those looking to make a healthy lifestyle change!

In the past, this Challenge was a 5-month program (Jan-May) but after listening to feedback from prior participants, everyone wanted to be held accountable and challenged for longer! NEW in 2023 The MEGA Health Challenge is coming to you as a 10-month program (Jan-October). We strive for you to want to be able to get healthy and maintain that lifestyle – allowing the challenge to end before the Holiday season!

Challenge your teammates, friends, coworkers, yourself and your family while discovering that you can achieve and maintain a healthier lifestyle if you really put your mind to it!

The 2023 MEGA Grand Health Challenge begins in January 2023 and ends in October 2023. The choice is yours to make the change – we hope to encourage participants to join and adapt to a healthier lifestyle!


  • Each participant is a member of a team, the team must consist of at least 2 but allowed up to 7 members on a self-named team. You choose the name and will be known as that name throughout the challenge.
  • Each participant will weigh-in for a starting weight at a designated weigh-in location during the designated times between January 10th – 12th time frame!

• There will be 3 IN PERSON MANDATORY weigh ins: January, May & September

• The remaining months: Feb, March, April, June, July & August MUST BE self-reported from home and report the results back either by app, text, email or phone call. Weights may also be obtained at a location that offers weigh-ins during their operating hours (see weigh-in sheet for details)!

  • Children under 18 may participate but only with a signed consent from parent or legal guardian & must participate on the same team as the parent or legal guardian. If a child is under the age of 8, they may be weighed by the parents request (no BMI will be measured) and their results will not count in the challenge.
  • Each team member agrees to weigh-in once a month and report their weights accurately during the times provided by Grand Lake Health System. These weights will be recorded on a master list by the hospital staff.
