The City of Lewisville Parks and Recreation Department is sponsoring the 2018 It’s Time Texas! Community Challenge, beginning Monday, Jan. 8.
This challenge, a simple way for cities across Texas to show their commitment to healthy living, runs through March 4. Communities can earn points when individuals, businesses, schools and local officials make commitments to build healthier communities, exercise, eat healthy and track their progress throughout the program.
Visit Ittcommunitychallenge.com and register as a Lewisville participant in the challenge and show how you choose healthy living. Participation in this challenge can be as simple as going for a walk in the park, working out at Lewisville recreation centers, buying fresh produce, preparing a healthy meal or anything else that proves an active and healthy lifestyle.
The Parks and Recreation Department has set up some exciting events as part of this challenge, including the Lewisville Ninja Warrior family event 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Jan. 13 at the Frederick P. Herring Recreation Center, at which attendees can take a shot at the Lewisville Ninja Warrior obstacle course, and the couch potato to 5k program which runs Jan. 27 to April 7. Information and registration packets for this can be picked up at the Memorial Park Recreation Center or the Frederick P. Herring Recreation Center.
