Disqualification: Participants are disqualified if they fail to complete a task during the week or fail to their listed vice. Participants will also be disqualified if they fail to report that they are “still in” the competition each week on the blog post at http://healthyfitfamilies.com. A link to the blog post will be posted 3 times per day on Friday at www.facebook.com/healthyfitfamilies. Participants will have until Saturday 9pm Pacific Standard Time to report themselves “still in” the challenge. Obviously this will be on the honor system but we trust that everyone will play fair. We will periodically post the names of contestants who are “still in.”
Prizes: Of all the contestants still participating at the end of 10 weeks, 5 names will be drawn and those participants will receive a free healthyfitfamilies.com t-shirt. The 5 participants must post a picture of themselves wearing the t-shirt in order to be placed in an additional drawing where the 3 names drawn will all receive a $50.00 gift certificate. We reserve the right to increase the value of the gift certificates as well as the number of winners as more sponsors and donors are expected in the upcoming weeks.
