The four weign in sites are the Kilowatt Community Center, Bert Raney Elementary, Granite Falls Hospital, and Countryside Public Health.
The first weigh ins will be held Thursday, January 9th. At the initial weigh in, participants will wear only t-shirts, shorts or lightweight wind pants, and a pair of socks.
So gather a team and start your New Year off right!
