Please read the challenge details below. Same info as last year; dates and a few other minor details have been tweaked.

A challenge to raise awareness about childhood cancer…

A chance to have fun with a little friendly competition … and of course, to GLITTER IN GOLD?!

Well, you are in luck. Introducing the 2014 edition of:

Glitter in Gold: Boston versus Yoopers!

 (#GIGchallenge for you hashtag maniacs out there)

As many of you know by now, Stefanie and I have a great desire to make a positive impact on raising awareness and funding for childhood cancer.

We have created a Glitter in Gold campaign to help end this awful disease in honor of Mchalie’s battle.

Last year, we set out to do something about it. Combining our passion to help find a cure for childhood cancer with our passion to inspire people to a journey of health, our challenge, Boston versus Yoopers ~ Glitter in Gold, was born. Because of its resounding success, we are doing it again this year!

***Please note that as fitness professionals, Stefanie and I are passionate about focusing on healthy choices and a healthy journey.  That is why we are combining the weight loss percentage with the inches lost percentage.  We have also included a participation portion for a chance to win Zumba gear as well.***

Challenge Details:

STARTS: MONDAY, OCTOBER 27TH (weigh in/measurement before)


1.) Between now and October 27th, please arrange a time to meet with Royale or Stefanie (before/after class would work best) to get your starting weight and measurements.  (Your numbers are private!)


3.) Half of all registration fees will be donated to GLITTER IN GOLD, the nonprofit that Royale and her husband have established in Mchalie’s name. All funds from GIG will given towards a childhood cancer research facility as a part of our mission to find a cure.

4.) Spend the next 6 weeks getting your your booty into gear! Stay on top of working out/being active, eating healthy, drinking water, etc. :) (We will help you out with this part — our Facebook group that we used for this challenge last year was a great way to keep everyone on track and accountable for their actions!)

5.) At the end of the 6 weeks, weight and measurements will be taken again. The person with the largest combined weight lost percentage and inches lost percentage wins the jackpot cash (50% of total registration fees)!!!!

6.) This is an individual competition, but we are also going to do a grand total (percentage weight and inches lost) forBoston versus Yoopers.  The winning team will earn bragging rights as the 2014 Glitter in Gold: Boston vs. Yooper Challenge Champions.  A GLITTER IN GOLD trophy will also go to the winning team’s location.  The losing team will participate in some sort of video (optional and details to follow soon…..don’t worry about that part; it will be silly and all in good fun!) ;)

7.) But wait! There is 1 other prize as well!

–The person (1 from Boston and 1 from the U.P.) who displays the most dedication, participation, and support wins free Zumba®wear credit!! Stylin’!!

8.)  We would love to have those who participate in our fitness classes (Zumba, barre, lean&tone etc.) to join this challenge, but you do not HAVE to be one of our class participants in order to join this challenge. At the end of the day, the more participation we get means greater awareness for childhood cancer and healthier friends in our communities.  What a win-win! So spread the word and convince your friends, siblings, significant others, whoever you want, really, to join in!  :)

9.)  Of course, we will add more fun things for you all during this 6 week challenge!

10.)  As was already mentioned above, a private Facebook Page has been created by Royale and Stefanie for all our challenge participants in order to help you have the most successful experience possible.

Thank you so much!! We are so excited to raise awareness and make a difference in both our lives and the lives of these child warriors. Please contact me as soon as possible to register!

YOOPERS…………!!! Last year, we won – NARROWLY (and by that I mean by less than 1%!!!!)  LET’S DO THIS – AGAIN!! :-D
