The Lifestyle Improvement Challenge is sponsored by the Baylor Regional Medical Center at Grapevine. Cities that have agreed to participate include Colleyville, Grapevine, Hurst, Euless, Roanoke, Keller, Haslet, and Watauga.
A Healthy Communities Task Force will be judging which city best achieves the most healthy lifestyle. Colleyville began the challenge with a kick-off race. The Run, Walk & Read race was on Nov. 5. Other events, such as healthy cooking demonstrations, also took place.
Grapevine is offering a weight loss competition within its city and the person who loses the most weight between Jan. 1 and March 3, will win a cash prize.
The second annual Holley Colley Holiday festival will be taking place this weekend at Main Street and Colleyville Road.
This event is free and open to the public and will begin with a Santa ride on the mayor’s antique fire truck. After this, the city’s Christmas tree will be lit and photos with Santa can be taken. There will also be dance and choir performances after, as well as arts and crafts.
