KADENA AIR BASE, Okinawa — Friday is the last day to register for the Biggest Loser competition at Kadena Air Base’s Health and Wellness Center.

Participants can join a five-member team or compete as individuals, according to Jennifer Lown of the 18th Services Squadron.

Registration is free and open to all active-duty servicemembers, Department of Defense ID card-holding civilians, and dependents stationed on Kadena, Lown said.

Prizes will be awarded for the greatest percentage of weight lost for a team and individual male and female, according to competition rules.

The Health and Wellness Center will coordinate monthly weigh-ins as well as events and competitions until the event ends in May, Lown said.
