KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Kansas City Mayor Sly James and Chamber CEO Jim Heeter are facing off in a weight loss challenge.
The "Not So Big KC Challenge" launched Monday. The two men will work to lose weight and improve upon a recent health screening over the next five months.
The final weigh-in will be in October.
Both city leaders hope to use the competition to set an example of healthy living for the community.
