DRIPPING SPRINGS, TEXAS – February 23 –  Dripping Springs proved last year, that our city is the most fit and active community in the state! We came out on top in our category of the It’s Time Texas Community Challenge (ITT), a statewide healthy competition.

Aside from bragging rights, the city was awarded an $1800 grant to use towards health and fitness for our community. The money is going towards trail marker and map improvements at Dripping Springs Ranch Park.
The city is once again stepping up, for the 2018 ITT Community Challenge presented by H-E-B. The free, statewide competition is currently underway, in which communities are competing to demonstrate the greatest commitment to healthy living.

The communities with the most points at the end of the challenge on March 4, will again receive a grant to go towards park improvements or a healthy living initiative.
Points are earned simply by registering, pledging support and documenting actions like healthy eating, working out, etc. More details about how points are earned are available on the challenge website—

A “Mayor’s Health and Fitness Council” has been established as part of the challenge and is chaired by Mariana Espinoza, Parks and Community Services Director for the City of Dripping Springs. DSISD School Board Trustee Mary Jane Hetrick is serving as Vice Chair.

For more information about the Mayor’s Health and Fitness Council, you can visit the city’s website at as well as the Facebook page
