(Seguin) -- It's time for you to put down that extra taco, and go hit the treadmill. The Seguin City Council is officially offering its support for the 2017 It's Time Texas Community Challenge. Seguin Public Information Officer Morgan Ash explained the challenge, and why the council was officially being asked to join the effort to create a healthier Seguin.
"The 2017 It's Time Texas Community Challenge, we the city council of Seguin, Texas pledge to kick off It's Time Texas Community Challenge by declaring our support and encouraging our constituents to participate. We're going to need you to sign the pledge. We're about to take a picture with all you guys holding the pledge. I will submit that to It's Time Texas and we'll get some points for that," said Ash.
Seguin is competing against similar sized communities during the challenge. Folks, much like the city council, are encouraged to sign up and then take a photo showing off their commitment to exercise and healthy eating.
The entire community is encouraged to participate by going online and signup at www.ittcommunitychallenge.com
