The mega successful Lose4Autism weight loss campaign for men, is launching a sister program exclusively for girls and women. If you are looking to jump start your weight loss efforts, Lose4Autism is here to turn you into the biggest loser … and also into the biggest winner.
For every pound you lose, friends and family pledge to sponsor you for the benefit of Imrei Binah, the premier Lakewood school for children with autism. The very biggest loser stands to win a shopping spree, thus far valued at $10,000 through the generosity of Imrei Binah supporters Reich Jewelers ($3,000 shopping spree) Rena Beane (Shevy Shaitel valued at $2,500), Brooklyn South West and Elegant Linen ($1000 shopping spree each), and Ladida ($1,500 shopping spree). To benefit Imrei Binah, offer a shopping spree at your store, or any other questions, please contact (516) 670-7669.
The men’s program, was launched on November 11, 2012 with a grand weigh-in party. At the weigh out event, held on February 20, 2012 the 50 participants had raised a staggering $200,000 and lost a total of 2,500 lbs.
The women’s program has already been launched, with the weigh in event scheduled for April 7th. Members will be awarded Lose4Autism t-shirts, a digital scale, and free gym passes. Participants stand to win incentives as they move forward in their weight loss and fundraising efforts, with the grand prize of $10,000 awarded to the participant with the greatest percentage of weight loss. All member sponsorship proceeds will directly benefit Imrei Binah.
The Imrei Binah model is a tuition-free center based program that provides speech therapy, occupational therapy (OT) music therapy, physical therapy (PT) and applied behavioral analysis therapy (ABA) alongside an academic model focused on school readiness. The staff-student ratio is 1:1. Through a concentration of individualized curriculums that focus exclusively on autism related challenges, Imrei Binah is maximizing the potential of children with autism to facilitate the growth of meaningful communication and social integration.

While I think that Imrei Bina is a great and worthy organization, this weight loss contest stinks of an extreme lack of tznius and really does not belong in a frum community.
While we appreciate your genuine concern for the Tznius of this program. Please be advised that this program was done with the guidance of Daas Torah. So please know your facts before you comment.
there will always be people who will complain about everything that goes on in this town.
there’s a song that goes as follows: you can’t please everyone, you got to please yourself.
this organization is doing something nice to raise money and also help people lose weight. what more can you ask for.
I would really think about registering. however, im a private person, and im very self-conscious of my weight. so I really wanted to know-by the mens event, you had it announced all over who won, by losing x amount of pounds, which was x% of his weight.
are you also going to announce that by the women? will people even know which women signed up?
I would only even think about it if it would be completely private, so please let me know. thank you!
By the mens competition there were people that joined anonymously in fact one of the winners was anonymous (used a pen name). The people that were announced was with their consent. Obviously the women’s competition is going to be very descreet. In any case the frum media would never post photos or such information about women.
Is it a Chevy or a Shevy, cuz my wife only wants a Shevy!
How does 3,000+2,500+1,000+1,000+1,500=10,000?
I want to see before and after pix from the men please
I would like to know if the guy who lost 104 lbs. in 120 days and won $25,000 finally ate something and started gaining his weight back.
This is a wonderful idea! What a great way to make dieting and losing weight fun. All for this campaign… I would love to join!
Wow it really is a great prize!!!
How much do you have to get from your sponsors for each pound you lose? I don’t know anyone rich enough to sponsor me.
why do the men get more money then the women??
Because it is easier for women to lose weight…(snicker).
