Did you know that Wellesley Dental Group gathered 5,260 pounds of candy last year? What exactly does that mean? Our friend Janice Bogasky, President of Women's Business Group, shared that information with us.
5260 pounds x 16 ounces/pound = 84,160 ounces That is equivalent to 84,160 mini-chocolate (1 oz) candy bars.
84,160 ounces x 152 calories/ounce (calories in 1 ounce of milk chocolate) = 12,792,320 calories!
12,792,320 calories divided by 3,500 calories/pound (extra calories consumed to gain a pound of weight) = 3,655 pounds of weight gain were in that U-Haul!!
Just think about all the weight gain we all helped prevent during last year's endeavors! We are looking to make things even bigger and better this year. So please click here to read more about our Candy Drive.
