GCHD Recognizes Texas City for Community Challenge Achievement
The Galveston County Health District was happy to recognize the City of Texas City for its outstanding job promoting and encouraging participation in the 2017 It's Time Texas Community Challenge. GCHD CEO Kathy Barroso presented the city a certificate at its May 18 city commission meeting.
The Community Challenge, an annual competition sponsored by It’s Time Texas, challenges Texans to participate in healthy activates to earn points for their communities. Points are earned in several ways including participating in community events, tracking workouts, eating healthier and posting selfies of healthy activities.
GCHD encouraged competition among Galveston County communities during the three-month challenge.
The City of Texas City went above and beyond by hosting events and encouraging community participation. In all, the Texas City community earned more than 1,198,550 points, far outperforming all other Galveston County communities combined. Additionally, Texas City finished third in the state in the mid-size category.
