BROWNSVILLE CITY EMPLOYEES CAN SIGN UP MONDAY FOR THE CHALLENGE-RGV 2024

The Challenge

The City of Brownsville is inviting its employees to participate in the Challenge-RGV 2024, a weight loss competition designed to encourage healthier lifestyles among the workforce. 

Employees who are interested in joining have an opportunity to officially enter the challenge by attending the weigh-in session on Monday, February 5, 2024. This initial weigh-in will take place between 5:00 PM and 7:30 PM at the BISD Wellness Fitness Center, located at 1 Boulevard of Champions.

To incentivize participation and commendable weight loss achievements, the City of Brownsville has announced attractive rewards for the competition. The employee who comes in first place by losing the highest percentage of weight will be awarded $200. Individuals finishing in second and third places will receive gift cards, the values of which have not been specified. 

The city is also offering an additional incentive to encourage broad participation: every employee who completes both the initial and final weigh-ins, thereby providing proof of their participation and effort through the weigh-in and weigh-out forms, will be granted one day off.

 This initiative aims to foster a spirit of healthy competition among city employees and to also promote wellness and positive lifestyle changes.
