Each week throughout the Showdown, the contestants will be blogging and vlogging about their experience. Community members can read about their journey at heb.com/slimdown, or participate from home with the Slim Down Showdown Challenge, an online healthy living course with recipes, workouts, summaries, videos, and a mobile tracker for weight. Last year, nearly 9,600 people signed up for the online challenge and recorded losing a total of 71,429 pounds.
This year, participants can log their progress to help their hometown win the H-E-B Community Challenge, a one-of-a kind competition that runs from January through April and mobilizes schools, businesses, organizations, individuals and leaders toward the common goal of transforming their community’s health. Five communities will be named winners with one participating school in each of the winning communities receiving a $1,000 grant. Winning schools and communities will be recognized at the Slim Down Showdown Finale on May 9 in San Antonio.
