biggestloser Advanced Life Systems Employee Contest Proceeds Benefit Children’s Village

What started as a simple employee competition turned into something much more. Advanced Life Systems of Yakima medics and staff come together for better health and a bigger cause – helping special health care needs children in the Yakima Valley. Their “Biggest Loser” contest consisted of 17 employees and raised $1,381 for Children’s Village Capital Campaign.

On Friday, June 5th at 9:00 a.m., Advanced Life Systems’ contest winner Brian Wakeman, and Woody Woodcock of Advanced Life Systems, will be presented a check to Children’s Village.

Advanced Life Systems’ “Biggest Loser” contest spanned a three month period, from Feb 15th to May 15th. The company matched the $20.00 employee buy-in of each employee and also donated $10.00 for each pound lost by each contestant – for total of $1,381 to be donated to Children’s Village.

Brian Wakeman, the contest winner, lost a total of 7.82% of body weight. “In our line of work, we assist children almost daily and wanted to do something that helped those with special needs,” says Brian.

“Advanced Life Systems is committed to our involvement in the community and Children’s Village is intricate part of our community,” says Woody Woodcock of Advanced Life Systems. “We wanted to help Children’s Village in the good work that they do – providing priceless services to children in our valley.”

THANK YOU Advanced Life Systems!!
