904 MISSION ONE MILLION REACHES 75,000 POUNDS & ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP

Jacksonville, FL (April 10, 2017) – 904 Mission One Million has reached a major milestone: more than 75,000 pounds lost in just one year. 904 Mission One Million is also proud to announce a partnership with 904THIN, rebranding it to 904 Mission One Million presented by 904THIN.

Dr. Rafael Foss, founder of 904THIN, made the partnership announcement Monday at Unity Plaza joined by the 904 Mission One Million Co-Chairs: Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry and Duval County Medical Society Foundation President Dr. Sunil Joshi.  

“904THIN's goal has always been to make the First Coast the healthiest community in the world,” said Dr. Foss. “We are just so excited to be partnering with Mayor Curry and the Duval County Medical Society Foundation to support this incredible initiative by transforming lives one person at a time until we reach our One Million pound goal.”

First announced on April 7, 2016, 904 Mission One Million presented by 904THIN has registered more than 3,900 participants. Those participants have lost more than 75,000 pounds. A significant portion of that was contributed from more than 2,000 individuals Dr. Foss helped lose weight in the past twelve months.

One of the leading factors impacting the health of Duval County is weight. Two out of three people in the 904 area code are overweight.

“Establishing weight loss goals is essential to combating obesity, one of the contributors to quality health outcomes and rankings,” said Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry. “Mission One Million offers a collaborative way for people in our community to work together and motivate one another to make Jacksonville a healthier place to live.”

904 Mission One Million presented by 904THIN is part of Jacksonville Mayor Lenny Curry’s Journey to One program. Journey to One is a comprehensive strategy focused on improving Duval County’s position in the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation County Health Rankings from 55 to 1.
