The future of fundraising--Biggest Loser style?
This has nothing to do with the story, but I remember from my time in Missouri that Stephens had a nice adult, coeducational, degree program. Let's hope they get the million dollars.
Stephens College challenge: Lose weight, collect $1M
An anonymous donor has promised to give $1 million to a Missouri women's college if school employees collectively shed at least 250 pounds by the end of the year.
An unidentified Stephens College graduate living in Oregon brokered the weight-loss deal with school president Dianne Lynch, the Columbia Daily Tribune reported. The donor will kick in an extra $100,000 if Lynch herself loses 25 pounds.
