San Antonio Gets a Healthy Challenge

Educate. Equip. Get Fit

For the fourth year, Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Texas (BCBSTX) is a presenting sponsor of the San Antonio Sports Foundation’s Fit Family Challenge program. Participants are encouraged to exercise as a family at least 60 minutes a day, five days a week, while keeping a log of fitness and food intake. Weekly fitness classes are available at eight locations to help families keep active.

The Fit Family Challenge is a rare combination that's perfect for us: free classes and events, programs that include child fitness, great instructors, AND prizes! There's no better way to get fit in San Antonio!

The families earn points to win prizes throughout the competition. Terri Marshall-Schrader won a $1,000 prize during the 2017 challenge. “I started the Fit Family Challenge three years ago because I could not afford a gym and wanted an exercise program for me and my daughter,” explains Marshall-Schrader. “The Fit Family Challenge encourages both my child and me to be fit. The Fit Family Challenge is a rare combination that’s perfect for us: free classes and events, programs that include child fitness, great instructors, AND prizes!  There’s no better way to get fit in San Antonio!” With this partnership, BCBSTX extends their reach to the San Antonio area in efforts to get families across the state active and to make healthy choices.
