Program Overview

The “Lay Aside Every Weight” Program will target obesity in New Orleans and change the lives of 64 participants during a 6-month period by giving them access to trainers, medical professionals, counseling sessions, camp activities, and progressive incentives.  Our state’s obesity rate ranks #2 in the nation.  Louisiana’s annual cost on obesity related medical conditions averages $1.3 billion. Sadly, most people cannot afford to pay $9,000 for a 7-week fitness camp or the cost of 1 to 2-year contractual membership fees at local gyms. That’s why BBOM has started this innovative program called “Lay Aside Every Weight” (LAEW). LAEW was designed to give participants healthier lifestyle choices.  will conclude with a city-wide Family Health & Fitness Fair.
