The Challenge-RGV 2024 marks our 15th season, and we are excited to bring yet another year of healthy successes to the Rio Grande Valley! This free community wellness program is a collaboration between the UTHealth Houston School of Public Health in Brownsville, the City of Brownsville, other regional municipalities, community partners, and sponsors.

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 as well as additional gym locations available to participants in the Upper Rio Grande Valley.

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. 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 participants to recruit their family, friends, and colleagues to register as a group. Activities are free to the public, draw hundreds of families, and include significant media coverage through TV, radio, print, and social media. This event is your opportunity to be an agent of healthy lifestyle change in your community.

We'd like to invite your organization to consider sponsorship for The Challenge-RGV 2024 taking place from January 20th to April 27th. You will be supporting a program that has already helped participants lose over 22,000 pounds!
