A fitness technician with Peoria, Ariz.-based Brookdale Senior Living lost 100 pounds in a weight-loss competition to snag the grand prize: his first skydive.

D’Artagnan Lopez participated in the 12-week contest but it took him eight months to lose enough weight to be allowed to skydive. Once he reached his goal, the organization rewarded him by springing for the jump.

“It was pure rush,” Lopez says.

About 4,000 employees participated in the contest, sponsored by Brookdale’s parent organization, Innovative Senior Care. The group lost a collective 30,000 pounds. The winner was allowed to choose his own reward.
