Praise from Meltdown Organizers and Participants
“Working with our chamber of commerce, we kicked off our first Community Meltdown in 2010. We had 500 participants, who lost 3000 pounds. I attribute our success to Carole and the ideas in her book and "how-to" manual, which we followed closely. Because of our success, we are organizing a second event.”
