Parks and Recreation Hosts Fit February Healthy Selfie Challenge

New Braunfels, TX – The City of New Braunfels Parks and Recreation Department is hosting a Fit February Healthy Selfie Challenge as a part of the statewide health initiative, IT’S TIME TEXAS Community Challenge. The IT'S TIME TEXAS Community Challenge is a free competition in which Texas communities compete to see which can demonstrate the greatest commitment to healthy living.  First place cities in each size category win a grant from HEB, and that grant would be put towards the fundraising efforts for an all-abilities park in New Braunfels.

“To participate in the challenge, residents must first create an account on the IT’S TIME TEXAS website at,” said Parks and Recreation Marketing Coordinator Kelsey Heiden. “After creating the account, snap a healthy selfie at a park or trail while participating in a healthy activity, submit your selfie by uploading it to that same IT’S TIME TEXAS website and post your picture on Instagram or Facebook with the hashtags  #CommunityChallenge and #NBParksandRec.”

The challenge runs February 1st through February 28th and the New Braunfels participant with the most points on the IT’S TIME TEXAS website on February 28th will win a healthy living swag bag.
