Posted: Updated:
(TYLER MORNING TELEGRAPH) - The Fit City Challenge continues to grow as leaders from area cities begin to partner with the health initiative.

Visitors from Jacksonville, Henderson, Longview, Nacogdoches and Canton were on hand Wednesday as Fit City coalition members announced the details of the kickoff to Lighten Up East Texas, scheduled for 9 a.m. to noon Nov. 3 at Bergfeld Park in Tyler.

Lighten Up East Texas, a regional weight loss contest, has attracted people from neighboring counties, and community members are being encouraged to sign up for the competition.

Individuals or teams may be entered into a drawing for every 5 percent of body weight they lose.

Online registration for teams is encouraged before mid-October, coalition members said. After the initial weigh-in on Nov. 3, other weigh-ins will happen across East Texas counties on Nov. 9 and 16. These counties include Smith, Gregg, Wood, Van Zandt, Cherokee, Henderson, Rusk, Anderson, Upshur and Camp.

The final weigh-ins will be April 19, April 26 and May 4. The celebration event, in which winners of the drawings can receive significant prizes, will take place May 18. Participants must be at least 18
