CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE PARTICIPANTS!

That’s a wrap! The IT’S TIME TEXAS Community Challenge is over.

2017 IT'S TIME TEXAS Community ChallengeThe 2017 Community Challenge is over, but the efforts and enthusiasm put forth by this year’s participants was nothing short of historical. In three short months, more than 23,500 Texans, representing roughly 330 communities, registered for the Challenge, exercised more and tracked their workouts, ate healthier, organized group and community health events, and encouraged their friends, family, colleagues, and fellow community members to join them in demonstrating their commitment to healthier cities and a healthier state.

From the more than 70 Texas mayors and the schools, businesses, local non-profits, faith-based organizations, which lead thousands of healthy activities, participants from all over the Lone Star State stepped up to demonstrate that the health of their communities matter. We know that a healthy community is more prosperous, and by working together, we will make living healthy easier for all Texans.
