Biggest Loser: Sunrise Challenge



Biggest Loser Sunrise Challenge


UHA, one of Hawaii's leading health insurance companies, promotes healthy lifestyles and offers innovative health benefits to help people enjoy better health and a better life. By investing resources to improve the health and lives of its own employees, UHA hopes to have healthier, happier employees, and encourages other Hawaii companies to do the same.

Lasting lifestyle changes start by making a decision to take charge of your own health. Three UHA employer groups are ready to make positive changes and have boldly stepped forward to participate in the Biggest Loser Sunrise Challenge. Real people with real challenges, juggling multiple responsibilities. They have agreed to candidly share their stories to inspire others to also pursue better health.


A Word from UHA

"We are proud to create a Biggest Loser Challenge in Hawaii. Our company motto is "If we can, you can." Our featured clients recognize that wellness and prevention is the cornerstone to good health. We want to show that "if our customers can, so can everyone else." Achieving weight loss is more than just looking good. It's about taking control of your life and enjoying all that it has to offer. At UHA, we know that being healthy is hard to do alone, so that is why we are dedicated to helping people live happier and healthier lives. We hope others will join the journey to a healthier lifestyle because we know that there is nothing more important than your health."
