The IT'S TIME TEXAS Community Challenge (ITTCC) is an 8-week competition that unites and mobilizes schools, businesses and community members toward the goal of transforming your community's health.
All entrants of Lighten Up Texas who collect 5000 points or more in the ITTCC will have their LUET entries doubled for our Grand Prize drawings in May 2019.
The ITTCC starts January 7th & runs through March 3th.
You will automatically receive 500 points just by registering your free account. Click here to register for the ITTCC.
It is very easy to collect more than 5000 points.
The name on your ITTCC account MUST match the name listed on their LUET Registration Form, in order for us to connect the dots and to double your LUET entries.
After you have collected 5000 points, you will need to take a screenshot of your ITTCC points and send the screenshot to our email - "LightenUpEastTexas@gmail.com".

Walk Across Texas! is not a walk-a-thon, nor an event to raise money. Teams compete to walk across the state and/or to accumulate the most miles during the eight weeks.
The main point is to perform the easiest exercise - walking.
Walk Across Texas! starts March 4th & goes to April 28th.
The goal is for your team to collectively cover 830 miles, which is the east-west mileage from El Paso to Texarkana.
Participants of Lighten Up East Texas will be asked to create teams and the challenge is for your team to keep track of the number of miles that you walk, jog, run or crawl.
Prepare to create your team by performing the following steps:
Team Captains find up to 7 others for team.
The Team Captain also registers all members of your team into Walk Across Texas! by clicking here.
Make sure each team member has a plan to track the number of miles that they cover each day.
Team members can e-mail, text, or call their mileage to their team captain, so that your team's weekly mileage can be entered on the Walk Across Texas website.
Make sure all team members 'weigh-in' for Lighten Up East Texas before February 28th.
The It's Time TEXAS Community Challenge (ITTCC) and Walk Across Texas! (WAT) are separate programs that are not administered by Fit City Tyler. You do not have to participate in either of these programs, but your participation may increase your success in achieving your weight loss goal for the Lighten Up East Texas regional weight loss challenge.
