Wise Events
11
For the Morelli family
of South Lyon, life
revolved around
food. And it showed.
Parents Ron and Becky
had both undergone
gastric bypass surgery;
nevertheless, Ron’s
weight had reached
over 500 pounds. Mike and Max, their
teenage sons, weighed nearly 400 pounds
each. In June of 2008, Mike heard on the
radio that NBC’s
The Biggest Loser
was
having auditions in Michigan. He and his
father auditioned, and they were cast as
contestants on season seven. They made
it to the final four and lost a combined 400
pounds!
This book chronicles their journey. You’ll
find chapters written by each family
member, providing their individual
perspectives and inspiration as well as
recipes and kitchen hints.

We’re 50! Come celebrate with us at the
HAPpy Together Summer Health Tour
In 1960, we first opened our doors under the name Community
Health Association (CHA), a nonprofit community health plan. At
the heart of CHA was the core value of health maintenance through
preventive care – a principle that still guides HAP to this day as we
serve nearly 500,000 members across southeast Michigan.
“Together” with our members, employees, health
care providers and community partners, we will
commemorate 50 years of enhancing the health
and well-being of the lives we touch with fun events coming to
a community near you this summer. Visit
hap.org/50th
to learn
more.
