Workers Lifestyle Group has been excited to introduce the 2Kg Challenge- a diabetes awareness, detection and prevention campaign to our Workers Lifestyle Group staff and members. This Challenge has been developed through WLG’s connection with Western Sydney Diabetes and Novo Nordisk to form a collaboration entitled Western Sydney Changing Diabetes.

This Challenge has provided an opportunity to reduce a person’s chance of type 2 diabetes. Just by living in western Sydney, our residents are twice as likely to develop diabetes than someone living in Sydney’s Eastern or Northern suburbs.

The good news is that there’s lots that can be done to reduce a person’s risk. For example, if a person is at risk of diabetes, losing just 2kg can reduce their chance of developing type 2 diabetes by 30%.
The 2 Kg Challenge is a free online program. Once signed up, the participant gains access to an array of great tips, ideas and resources to help get fitter and healthier.

This will dramatically reduce their chance of diabetes, along with a large number of other lifestyle related conditions. Everyone is given a choice of what they think would work for them.

There is a large number of ideas and options in the hope that everyone will find at least one thing that they will enjoy and keep doing.

By joining the 2kg Challenge, the participant also becomes part of a community and gains access to exclusive offers and local events.
