Dripping Springs Aims to Reclaim Champion Title for Statewide Health and Fitness Competition

DRIPPING SPRINGS, TEXAS – January 10, 2019 – The city is once again stepping up, for the 2019 It’s Time Texas Community Challenge presented by H-E-B. The statewide competition motivates communities to engage in some friendly competition to demonstrate the greatest commitment to healthy living. Everyone can help, and the competition is currently underway. There’s no cost to participate.

Last year, Dripping Springs came in fifth place.  In 2017, we proved that our city is the most fit and active community in the state! We came out on top in our category of the ITT community challenge.
Aside from bragging rights, the city was awarded an $1800 grant to use towards health and fitness for our community. The money was used for trail markers and map improvements at Dripping Springs Ranch Park.

The communities with the most points at the end of the challenge on March 3, will 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.
