Beginning in October, Radnor Township manager Bob Zienkowski slowly started tightening his belt. Months later, he’s 27.5 pounds lighter.
As part of his Health and Wellness Manager’s Challenge, Zienkowski will join nutritionist Emma Fogt one last time at the Gourmet Kitchen of the Wayne Art Center on April 11 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Fogt will close out the free four-part series with a cooking class on how to “live healthy for life.”
Zienkowski’s goal to lose 30 pounds before May 2012 began as a way to prompt Radnor residents to live healthier lifestyles as well as give back to the community. During the first phase of the challenge, Zienkowski gave $10 for every pound lost to the Wayne Senior Center Wellness Program.
He began a similar challenge in 2004 while he was still the city manager of Brunswick, Ohio. Even after Zienkowski’s departure to come to Radnor in 2010, Brunswick managed to keep the program alive. Brunswick’s 2012 City Manager’s Challenge “Weekend Warrior” ends March 31.
