Dare to Lose 2014 has concluded! We are excited to report on the progress of the two teams. Each team, composed of three participants and led by a celebrity DJ (Derek, DJ for 99.9 The Point, and TRI-102.5′s DJ Paul) competed in a three-month-long contest. Though only 3 winners were selected, each contestant’s journey proved that everyone is a winner when he/she is working toward a goal, making progress, and living a healthy lifestyle each day!

“I am the morning guy on 99.9 The Point.I am married to a wonderful wife and I am a huge nerd who loves video games and movies. But I also love getting active. Unfortunately, I don’t really put it on the top of my list. That’s why I am excited to be part of the Dare to Lose with Miramont! I want to feel comfortable and motivated while I get myself in shape and healthy and Miramont is there to help make that a reality. I am excited to help my team and myself meet our goals for a better today and tomorrow!”
