Erin Shields signed up for the challenge and is now four weeks in, “I signed up and asked if anybody in the area needed an accountability partner and the Y was grateful enough to hook me up with Suba.”

Suba Tamilselvan added, “I made a lot of friends and Erin is going to be one of my friends from now on.”

“It helps because you know someones going to be checking in on you,” said Shields. “So, you want to make sure you’re being truthful and telling them what’s going on. And, it gives you that motivation to reach your goal.”
