Wow! At first I didn't realize I was becoming part of such a great team! But this seems like almost a family of people just trying to encourage each other to get moving, be healthy!

So Happy Birthday to the 5% challenge team! Glad to be a part of this. emoticon

I joined Spark People January 2018 and became a TEDDY BEAR for the spring 5 % challenge....loved it.....now I'm the EL for the ML for the Summer Challenge and just know it's going to be a great summer. I just love these 5% Challenges and am thankful for the leaders who have made it possible. I'm sure it has changed many, many, many lives.

Not sure when I started. Just remember I was on a team (for 1 or 2 challenges) and then we were merged with another team and became the "Spirited Underdogs". Have been a Dawg since then. emoticon

This has been one fantastic journey. While beginning with the Overflo Campers Team that Heidi mentioned and progressing along with the mighty FIRECRACKERS (all but one challenge)--I've seen significant weight loss and enjoyed meeting many new friends. It's been a great 8 years and I'm hoping for another significant span of time here on this great team. With a terrific team leader like Heidi, we'll go far.

Happy Birthday to the 5% Challenge!!
I became a member of the 2010 Summer 5% Challenge when I received an invitation from someone named KALISWALKER! And I've been here since.

That challenge I became the CL of the Spirit Team and what a challenge that was. I met so many new people, it was amazing. The Fall the Spirit Team and the Dog Team merged and became the Spirited Underdogs. It has been my privilege to be a member of the 5% Challenge for the last 8 years.

Thank you to the original leaders and members of this challenge! Without you, there would be no 5% Challenge.

emoticon To the 2018 Summer 5% Challenge Community PARTY!!! emoticon

Roughly 8 years ago, in 2010 ~ The 5% Challenges began. Many of us have been here from the beginning, many of us may be here somewhat less and many of us are relatively new to the 5% Challenges. But this is a time to CELEBRATE the 5% Challenge Community as a whole: to celebrate YOU!!! Without Lynn (KALISWALKER), one of our original Overall Leaders and without each and every one of you, there would be no 5% Challenge Community. Thanks for stopping by ~ for helping us all to 'Celebrate' the 5% Challenge and the wonderful contribution that the Challenge has made to each one of us and the caring/sharing that this Community has given to each other and to ourselves.


The Leaders of the Firecracker Team 'cooked up' this idea to have a 5% Challenge Community-Wide Celebration. This is the time of year that we (The Firecrackers) became a team of the 5% Challenges, but we realized that 2010 was the year when the Challenges actually began ~ so we decided to include the WHOLE Community in our little celebration!

When the 5% Challenges were fairly new, there was a group of individuals that were awaiting a ‘ticket’ to board a plane for the next 5% Challenge. The group was made up of probably 30-40 individuals. The group was actually made into a subset of the 5% Challenge and we were referred to as The Overflow Campers.

I guess we got that name because it was Spring/Summer and we were awaiting the end of the current Challenge. I remember being a part of that friendly group and, even though I worked full-time, had a DD that I ran here, there, and everywhere ~ I always looked forward to getting on my computer and chatting with this friendly group of strangers. The only thing that we had in common at that time was that we were all members of SparkPeople and that we were awaiting to get on a ‘new team’ to start a ‘new adventure’. We actually participated in the Challenge, right along with everyone else and found that as a team we could do great things. We got along so well, that as it became time to decide to go to an established 5% Challenge Team, we were all pretty sad about it and didn’t want to lose the connections that we had formed with each other. We chatted amongst ourselves and petitioned the Overall Leadership to let us all join the next 5% Challenge together. We were granted our wish and we were SO excited! Our current name, ‘The Overflow Campers’ just wouldn’t do so we put our heads together and came up with a new name for the team. It was around this time of year and we all thought that summer evenings, campfires and fireworks were perfect together, and so – the Firecracker Team was born! We still – to this day have a few ‘original Firecrackers’ on our team. Of course, none of us can remember EXACTLY what day the team came to be, so we decided amongst ourselves to make July 4th the ‘official’ Birthday of the Firecracker Team. Each year, we post little messages in our ‘Sizzling Sparklers Chat’ Forum and the older members seem to reminisce about the ‘good old days’ and the Firecracker membership always seems to enjoy hearing about our ‘history’. This year, our Firecracker Leaders decided that we were really going to celebrate! If you look at any of the Firecracker Leader’s Picture – we are all identical in preparation of the celebration of our 8th Year!

In honor of the 8th year of the Firecracker Team, we wanted to share our celebration with all of you, so we asked if we could start this thread on the Community Team so that we could all share in the ‘fun’. We’ve also made a Birthday Card that you are welcome to take with you as a memento. It then occurred to us that SEVERAL of our current teams have also celebrated 8 years as part of the 5% Challenge. They, of course joined earlier than the Firecrackers did, but nonetheless, several of the teams have also been in existence for 8 years. That is one heck of an accomplishment!!!

So, the Firecrackers are expanding THEIR celebration to include the ENTIRE 5% Challenge Community! If you stop by, please leave a message for a team that is celebrating. If you are an original Challenger and you happen to know what your FIRST Challenge team was ~ please wish that team well. This would be a GREAT 5% Challenge Community ‘event’ that everyone can participate in. Wish the teams well, wish the oldest members well – LET’S CELEBRATE!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon
