Join Droptober and help children in need, writes Bronwyn McNulty. Continued Page 22 P ersonal trainer and weight-loss expert Michael Jarosky recently had a light-bulb moment that he hopes could help Australians lose weight, improve their lifestyles and support a good cause. So, October becomes ‘‘Droptober’’ when you sign up to commit to losing two kilograms and raising money for the children’s charity Kids for Life. ‘‘I just wanted to do something to help a lot of people,’’ Jarosky, author of the weight-loss book 40 Days as a City Caveman, says. ‘‘So this is me getting on my soapbox and saying, ‘C’mon, let’s lose some weight.’ ’’ The Droptober campaign invites anyone to join and embrace small lifestyle changes to make a big difference. ‘‘There are too many parks and oceans and too much sun here for Australians to have the same problem as Americans,’’ says the Chicago native, who is no stranger to the battle of the bulge.

Droptober participants don’t need to do all that. Once you sign up and pay the registration fee of $20, you will receive a copy of Jarosky’s ebook, a charity collection form, 50 tips for losing two kilograms and THE SUN-HERALD SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 25, 2011 19 my health SPECIAL REPORT Raising hope Kids for Life (kidsforlife.com.au) is a charity devoted to raising awareness of sick and underprivileged children in Australia.
