2017 Challenge Winners!

The 2017 Community Challenge is over, but the efforts and enthusiasm put forth by last 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, to the many community, school, business, local non-profit, and faith-based organization representatives, more than ten thousand participants from all over the Lone Star State stepped up to demonstrate that the health of their communities matter. We can't wait to see what we you can accomplish during this year's Community Challenge!
