H-E-B is giving Texans more time to sign up for a chance to win a $10,000 grand prize or a $5,000 "fan favorite" prize in the 2013 Slim Down Showdown, a life-changing journey toward a healthy body and a new outlook on life.
Sign-up is open through Oct. 21, and the contest begins in January 2013. H-E-B will help contestants make good on New Year's resolutions with a program that offers support, coaching and education that contestants need to make lasting changes.
H-E-B will select 25 people from around the state to compete in the 12-week contest. Applications, rules and FAQs can be found online at Heb.com/slimdown.
Contestants will be notified in December and announced publicly in January 2013. Winners will be announced in April 2013.
When the contest begins in January, all contestants will come to San Antonio to participate in an intensive, five-and-a-half day wellness program with experts from H-E-B, Methodist Healthcare and Cooper Corporate Solutions. Upon returning home, contestants will receive weekly coaching and support. All contestants must be willing to share their journey and inspire others by doing media interviews and blogging about their experience.
