Join Prosper Mayor David Bristol and the Parks and Recreation Department in the newly expanded Mayor’s Fitness Challenge! The annual challenge will run the full year to encourage wellness as a Prosper lifestyle. Residents of all ages are invited to join the challenge, which is hosted annually to bring attention to health and fitness in the community.
The 2023 Mayor’s Fitness Challenge is divided into two tracking seasons, spring and fall, and an off-season over the summer. Participants who successfully complete the challenge will earn a t-shirt and an entry into the drawing for a pair of Bluetooth earbuds. Throughout all seasons, a variety of giveaways will distinguish the 2023 challenge from past challenges. Also, a grand prize winner will be selected to receive the Mayor’s Challenge Coin, presented by Mayor Bristol himself during a Town Council meeting.
"As Mayor of Prosper, I am proud to launch the 2023 Mayor’s Fitness Challenge, a year-long initiative aimed at promoting wellness as a lifestyle. I invite all residents, regardless of age, to participate in this year-long challenge and take advantage of the opportunity to improve their health and fitness. Let's make Prosper a healthier and happier community together," said Mayor David Bristol.

The Grand Prize is a Mayor’s Challenge Coin, presented by Mayor Bristol during a Town Council meeting. The recipient will be chosen from a random drawing at the conclusion of the Mayor’s Fitness Challenge.
A challenge coin is specifically designed to honor a person for a special achievement. Mayor Bristol brought the concept to Prosper and presents the Mayor’s Challenge Coin as a way to recognize staff and residents. The coin is one part of Mayor Bristol’s “Centers of Excellence” which includes five pillars (Technology, Healthcare, Education, Wellness and Community). The Mayor’s Challenge Coin, presented to the Mayor’s Fitness Challenge winning participant, will fall under the Mayor’s Wellness pillar.
