The Challenge-RGV is set to commence January 2020 The Challenge-RGV is a collaboration between The City of Brownsville and the UTHealth School of Public Health-Brownsville Regional Campus - along with many sponsors and community partners. The Challenge-RGV is more than a weight-loss competition;it's your opportunity to start living a healthier & more active lifestyle! The Challenge-RGV partners with local gyms, fitness experts, nutritionists and local organizations to help participants eat well, lose weight and make permanent healthy changes. Participants must be 18 years and older and must register at the initial weigh-in.
The goal of The Challenge-RGV is to inspire local residents to increase physical activity, make healthy food choices and when necessary, lose weight in order to improve their overall health. The rates of obesity and over-weight in our community are some of the highest in the nation, and The Challenge-RGV is designed to address this problem.
