Enjoy the Fitness and Fun! Mayor encourages participation in H-E-B Community Challenge
The second-annual Healthy at H-E-B Community Challenge has begun, and McKinney is in it to win it. The eight-week competition challenges communities across the state to demonstrate a commitment to healthy living. During the inaugural competition last year, McKinney ranked third in the Mid-Size City category. This year, McKinney is competing in the Large City category with a goal to finish number one.
The H-E-B Community Challenge runs through Nov. 1 and works on a point system. Points are earned online at by posting proof of various activities aimed at individuals, schools, businesses and organizations. Mayor Loughmiller has taken the pledge to declare his support for the challenge, and he says community support is necessary.
Schools, businesses and individuals can earn points by taking the online It’s Time Texas pledge. Further points are awarded for showcasing healthy activities happening on school campuses, in neighborhoods and in the workplace.
