Kristin Steede from NBC's The Biggest Loser Visits Holy Cross Campus

Kristin Steede was brought to us on behalf the KEEN Foundation. The Keen Foundation encourages new and unique learning experiences in Kaukauna and promotes activities that benefit the community. Today is the first in a series of "Healthy Start" events that they have planned for the community.

Kristin Steede is a natural leader and tenacious young business entrepreneur who has never been afraid to address challenges head on. But with her fast-paced, always on-the-go lifestyle, a healthy diet and exercise often fell to the bottom of Kristin's priorities.

That all changed when Kristin, along with her -mother Cathy, were selected as contestants on the hit NBC reality TV show the Biggest Loser. After losing a total of 167 lbs, Kristin is ready to share what she has learned in hopes that it can help others.

Our students participated in a POP challenge from the show which is harder than it looks. A few teachers at the Holy Cross Campus participated in a "wall sit" challenge. Ask a student from Holy Cross how the teachers did and who won that challenge!
