WHY: The City of McAllen is hosting a free, outdoor walking event to help encourage the community move and exercise during the day for better health and peace of mind, and rack up points for the City of McAllen’s participation in this year’s It’s Time Texas! Community Challenge.

Participants can walk, run, bike or skate their way to healthy! Strollers, pets and kids of all ages welcome and the first 100 participants receive a free t-shirt.  Masks, social distancing and all CDC and local COVID-19 guidelines will be strictly enforced.

“We want people to be able to get the health benefits of moving, in a fun environment where the community encourages each other,” said Mayor Darling.  “It should be a really fun, yet purposeful exercise session to help get our McAllen residents walking.”

The event is being coordinated as part of the City of McAllen’s participation in the It’s Time Texas! community health challenge competition.  Participants will be asked to register for the challenge and take a brief survey if they are not signed up. All will be asked to take a Healthy Selfie, which can then be uploaded to the ITT mobile app.  The City of McAllen receives points for various activities.  McAllen is currently in first place in the Large City category and has taken the winner’s trophy the last three years.

To find out how to participate as an individual or business in the challenge, visit: www.ittcommunitychallenge.com or call the City of McAllen Health & Code Enforcement Department at (956) 681-1900.
