You are passionate about health, you are passionate about the people you love, and we are excited to give you a platform to share your passion with the world while raising funds for It's Time Texas.
Invite your friends. Invite your family. Invite your colleagues.
As a state, we are not as healthy as we should or could be and some Texans are unfairly advantaged or disadvantaged due to their skin color and/or where they live. Today’s children are on track to be the least healthy generation. Unhealthy has become the new normal in Texas. Dramatically improving health and equity requires an approach that engages people and organizations to address the root causes of poor health. The work is incredibly important; however, with health continuing to decline we need to double our effort. We can do more.
Your gifts, influence, and participation encourage and make it possible for individuals, schools, businesses, organizations, places of worship churches, colleges, and local governments to activate around the common goal of building healthier communities.
At It’s Time Texas, we channel your passion for health and wellness and turn that into impactful programming, one-of-a-kind events, and meaningful learning opportunities that make a difference in people’s lives and communities. We do it for our kids. We do it for those who love us. We do it for each other.
Connect, Commit, Contribute. Be a part of building healthy communities.
The Community Challenge fundraising platform is designed for you to make a donation (button in the top left corner of the page) or set up a fundraising campaign (button in the top right portion of the page). You can set up any type of fundraising campaign, not just those which are challenge related. We know that you want to make health and wellness attainable for all and sometimes you have creative ways to do that. Set up a fundraiser and you can share your story in the most meaningful way for you.
Perhaps you want to share a birthday? Maybe you want to set up your own challenge. Perhaps you want to challenge your workout partners to join you. Whatever your jam…we want to stand with you.
