The It’s Time Texas Community Challenge is an easy and fun way for entire Texas communities to demonstrate their commitment to healthy living. The challenge is being brought to Fort Worth by FitWorth and Blue Zones Project.

Join Mayor Betsy Price by earning points and participating in a variety of healthy activities, such as posting “healthy selfies,” hosting healthy community events and tracking physical activity.

The winning community will receive funds from It’s Time Texas to put toward health efforts.

Fort Worth employers are taking the competition a step further through the FitWorth/Blue Zones Project Corporate Cup. The company that accrues the most points during the It’s Time Texas Challenge will take home the cup and earn a healthy dose of pride and bragging rights.

Fort Worth came in fourth statewide in the Metro division in 2016.

Employers must register by Nov. 22. The challenge will run Jan. 9-March 31, 2017.
