Princeton goes red Friday for National Wear Red Day

 

February is American Heart Month, a time when the American Heart Association asks all Americans to try to implement at least one positive change to ensure a healthier heart. The first Friday in February is observed as National Wear Red Day, so Friday, February 1, wear red to support the fight against heart disease in women.

 

 

 

*Heart disease is the No. 1 killer of both men and women in the United States, causing one in three deaths each year. Some heart disease risk factors include family history and aging; however, up to 80 percent of heart disease is preventable by making small changes to lead a heart-healthy lifestyle, according to the American Heart Association.

What is the Community Challenge?

The IT’S TIME TEXAS Community Challenge is a statewide free, fun healthy living competition that helps you create healthy habits. Earn points for your city or town simply by making healthier choices. The winning communities will receive funds to put toward future community health efforts.

How Does the Challenge Work?

Individuals, families, schools, businesses, organizations, mayors and community leaders can earn points for their city or town.

To get started, go to www.ittcommunitychallenge.com to register and select your community. This quick step will earn you an easy 500 points to kick off the challenge. From there, complete and log healthy activities to earn points through March 3, 2019.

Individuals 

You as an individual earn points by tracking physical activity and weight, watching a video about healthy living, hosting community events and taking healthy selfies. The selfies, worth 200 points each, simply show you participating in healthy activities or eating healthy

Mayors and City Officials

There are several more ways for city representatives to earn points, including creating a mayor’s challenge video, hosting community events and establishing a health collaborative.

School Staff and Faculty

School representatives can earn points for their city AND school district! Thousands of points are available for school boards, principals and teachers who sign pledges to participate. Healthy lesson plans and staff activities also earn points.
