WJU Employees Taking Part in ‘Biggest Lose’

WHEELING – A total of 47.5 pounds were shed during a month-long challenge held by Wheeling Jesuit University’s athletic training offices to help get employees in shape.

The challenge, named from the hit NBC show “The Biggest Loser,” brought together various groups on campus to challenge themselves to lose weight for a monetary reward at the end.

Winners are Jasmine Lo, corporate and foundation relations officer, and Noah Mull, alumni gift officer. Both are part of the Institutional Advancement Office who together lost 13.9 pounds, and a total of 3.9 percent body fat between the two.

According to Joe Shaffer, WJU clinical educational coordinator, 22 employees took part in the contest.
