Official Rules & Regulations

FFC’s first YOW winner, Quinetta Taylor, entered the contest after already starting her journey to weight loss. As someone suffering from chronic kidney disease, she was too overweight to be eligible for the Illinois state transplant list. At the end of her year, she had lost 120 pounds, and was placed on the list. She approaches fitness and nutrition with vigor, and is a champion for organ transplant education. Her kidney should be coming any day.

Last year’s winner, Dawn LaFleur, was nominated by her daughter after losing 100 pounds through nutrition alone. Now she understands the benefits of fitness for a well-balanced approach to overall health and well-being. Dawn and Quinetta have become friends and can often be found working out together.
