As we all know, health issues have plagued our community and continue to do so.  Why not lose some weight and help out a worthy cause?

We are challenging every Lodge in the Fifth Masonic District of The Most Worshipful Prince Hall Grand Lodge to join us in this endeavor.  We all walk around with apparel representing our Lodges, but what good are we if we are not physically capable of doing the work of a Mason.

The Challenge

  1. We are looking for a one (1) team from every Lodge to compete.
  2. A donation of $50 per team member is required.
  3. The winning team will be determined based on largest percentage of weight loss for the team.
  4. A cash prize will be awarded to the winning Lodge Team.
  5. A cash prize will be awarded to the individual with highest percentage of weight loss.

Proceeds to be split as followed:

  1. 10% to all 6 District Lodges that participate and the District Treasury
  2. 15%- Lodge with highest percentage of weight loss
  3. 15%- Individual with highest percentage of weight loss


In closing we are looking for maximum participation.  To make the challenge fair across the board the percentage of weight lost per team is the criteria not total pounds lost.  This isn’t just for the big guys!
