Led by the Northeast Texas Public Health District (NET Health) and the Tyler Morning Telegraph (Tyler Paper), the Fit City Tyler was created in 2010 as a community wellness coalition that encourages individuals and companies to create action toward adopting healthy lifestyles.  Fit City Tyler developed the Lighten Up East Texas regional weight loss challenge as a way to encourage individuals to contribute to the overall health of East Texas.
