Prosper, Texas Promotes Health And Wellness With Mayor's Fitness Challenge

Lace up your sneakers and join the town on a journey toward wellness and community spirit

Prosper residents are lacing up their sneakers and embracing a season of fitness as the Mayor's Fitness Challenge spring season is already underway. From now until May 31, participants are encouraged to dedicate at least 90 minutes per week to physical activity of their choice. Whether it's jogging, cycling or yoga, all forms of exercise count towards the challenge.

Registration is simple and can be done through the town's website, where participants can also download a tracking sheet. Those who complete the challenge by submitting their tracking sheets to the Parks & Recreation Department by June 9 will receive a free T-shirt and be entered into a drawing for Bluetooth earbuds.

But the fitness journey doesn't end there. Prosper is committed to fostering year-round wellness. After the spring season, residents can look forward to a summer season running from June 1 to Aug. 31 and a fall season running from Sept. 1 to Nov. 30. Participants who stick with the challenge throughout all three seasons and submit completed tracking sheets for both spring and fall will be eligible for the grand prize — the Mayor’s Challenge Coin.

In addition to individual fitness goals, Prosper is joining forces with neighboring Little Elm for The Journey of 1,000 Miles. This friendly competition, running from March 25 to April 21, encourages participants to track their steps each week. The goal? To collectively cover a thousand miles and foster community spirit across town boundaries.

For more information or to register for the Mayor's Fitness Challenge or The Journey of 1,000 Miles, residents can visit their website or contact Trevor Helton at [email protected] or call 972-569-1064.
