THE CHALLENGE-RGV 2024
WEIGHT LOSS COMPETITION

The Challenge-RGV provides people with the tools and opportunities to make sustainable, healthy lifestyle changes and lose weight when appropriate. Over the course of three months, participants have free access to gyms, exercise classes, health screenings, cooking classes, and fun runs/walks.

The event is open to people 18 and older from anywhere in the Rio Grande Valley. Those who participate in The Challenge-RGV have their baseline weight taken at the January kick-off event, midpoint weigh-in, and finale in April.

This year, we want to emphasize the importance of social support in overcoming obstacles and bringing mental health awareness with a theme of "interconnectedness." We highly encourage you to recruit your family, friends, and colleagues to register as a group.

We are excited to announce that this year, we will be including the City of Edinburg! This collaboration will bring an additional kick-off event, additional gym locations available to Upper Rio Grande Valley participants, and more opportunities to win.
