HUNDREDS SHOW UP FOR KICK OFF OF THE CHALLENGE-RGV WEIGHT LOSS COMPETITION AT LINEAR PARK

New Challenge

Cold temperatures did not keep hundreds of people from showing up for the official kick-off of The Challenge-RGV weight loss competition held Saturday, January 20, 2024, at Linear Park in Brownsville.

This initiative, which offers participants the chance to win $1,000, is not just a fitness challenge but a transformative journey towards better health and lifestyle.

Dressed in warm coats, hoodies and beanies, the crowds waited in line to get their height and weight taken and body measurements and then were given some encouraging words on how to live a healthy lifestyle that includes enjoying some free exercise classes at some local gyms.

For those individuals who were unable to make the weigh-in on Saturday, another weigh-in will be held on Friday, January 26, 2024, from 5:00 PM to 7 PM at the Brownsville Public Library Central Branch at 2600 Central Blvd. and the Southmost Branch at 4320 Southmost Blvd.
