Mission Statement

The Texas Round-Up is a statewide effort to encourage Texans of all fitness levels to incorporate daily physical activity and healthy choices into their lives. Governor Perry is teaming up with a number of Texas companies in a unique private/public partnership to motivate individuals to add at least 30 minutes of exercise, 5 days a week, through a special 6-10 week program. The Texas Round-Up program includes: A 6-10 week activity training program that provides suggestions and recommendations for making fitness a part of a daily routine. Participants can get guidelines and support from the website. A Governor's Challenge designed to entice all Texas communities to participate. The competition is based on participation (per capita) in the program and the Texas-sized 10K event. The city and/or region with the highest participation rate will be awarded the Governor's Cup and named "Fittest in Texas". For more information, email info@texasroundup.org.
