The City of New Braunfels Parks and Recreation Department is hosting a Fit February Healthy Selfie Challenge as a part of the statewide health initiative, IT’S TIME TEXAS Community Challenge. The IT'S TIME TEXAS Community Challenge is a free competition
in which Texas communities compete to see which can

the fundraising efforts for an all-abilities park in New Braunfels.
“To participate in the challenge,
residents must first create an account on the IT’S TIME TEXAS website at www.ittcommunitychallenge.com,” said Parks and Recreation Marketing Coordinator Kelsey

trail while participating in a healthy activity, submit your selfie by
uploading it to that same IT’S TIME TEXAS website and post your picture on
Instagram or Facebook with the hashtags #CommunityChallenge and
The challenge runs February 1st
