It's Time Texas Community Challenge



It’s Time Lewisville! Starting January 8, Lewisville Parks and Recreation is sponsoring the 2018 It’s Time Texas Community Challenge. This challenge is a fun and simple way for cities across Texas to demonstrate their commitment to healthy living.

Visit to register as a Lewisville participant to demonstrate healthy lifestyles.

Activities can be as simple as:
  • Going for a walk in the park
  • Working out at the Recreation Center or Senior Activity Center
  • Buying fresh produce
  • Meditation or Yoga for stress relief
  • Preparing a healthy meal
  • Or anything else that demonstrates an active and health lifestyle

All you need to do is register and take a photo of your activity and post it on

Lewisville Parks and Recreation's goal for the 2018 challenge is to introduce and expand the participation and involvement of citizens, schools, businesses, organizations over the next year. Lewisville can demonstrate healthy living against similar-sized Texas cities in our Community Challenge category. Let's get started and encourage your friends, family, co-workers and peers to join in with you!

How it works:

  • Step 1: Register for the IT'S TIME TEXAS Community Challenge on (or after) January 8 at and select our community.
  • Step 2: Earn points by tracking your physical activity, uploading Healthy Selfies, organizing group activities, and more
  • Step 3: Keep it going through March 4. If our city earns the most points in our size category, we will receive an $1,800 grant to put toward future health-related projects. Not to mention, serious bragging rights.
