As the coronavirus continues to impact communities, staying healthy is more important than ever. To help in that endeavor, the City of Richardson is again participating in the “It’s Time Texas” Community Fitness Challenge. The free, annual eight-week Challenge will take place Jan. 3-Feb. 28 and involves individuals, organizations, communities and schools engaging in a friendly competition, earning points and winning prizes for completing healthy individual actions such as working out, logging water intake and eating healthy meals. Participants can track their activities in real time through the new free, mobile Community Challenge app—earn 500 points just for downloading it!

Register before Jan. 3 to receive 250 bonus points. People who sign up on behalf of their city earn points for their community with every healthy action they submit.
