BUTTE, Mont. -

If losing weight is part of your new years resolutions, the Butte YMCA can help. They're kicking off their fourth annual Lighten Your Load Community Challenge.

Individuals or teams of five will compete over two and a half months to see who can lose the most pounds.

Winners can earn prizes from I Pods to YMCA member passes.

Welcome Center Supervisor Jennifer Ricci told us this is a great and fun way to kick off a weight loss challenge.

"We are really excited," Ricci said. "The staff actually looks forward to it and the majority of us have participated in it year after year. It's a fun way to go work out in a great setting.

Registration ends January 2nd and the challenge begins January 4th. To sign up, call the YMCA (406) 782-1266.
