The It's Time Texas Community Challenge unites Texans from across the state to build a healthier Texas. This free, fun eight-week competition challenges Texans to unite as communities and work towards developing daily healthy habits together. And like any good competition, there are prizes!
The Community Challenge also creates Health Champions. Health Champions are essential to creating a healthier Texas because they are committed to living a healthy lifestyle, and they unite others in their community to do the same. They make health a priority in their own life and the lives of everyone around them.
How does this challenge work?
Anyone living in Texas can download the ITT Community Challenge app to register for free. Logging daily healthy habits in the app such as drinking water, going for a walk and eating a healthy snack earns points. Additional app features empower participants to celebrate each other’s successes, find local group health activities, and explore nearby destinations that promote healthy living such as parks and walking trails. Plus, participants get free access to health resources including telehealth coaching, virtual fitness classes and healthy recipes.
Individuals have chances to win prizes throughout the competition with weekly mini-challenges. At the end of the competition, the top individuals, communities, school districts and organizations with the most points overall are crowned the grand winners and receive big prizes from It’s Time Texas. One community, school district and organization will win the grand prize for each of the following sizes: Metro, large, medium, small, extra small.
