We're teaming up with San Antonio Sports to help families develop healthy habits and stay active.

The 9th annual Fit Family Challenge is a free 12-week summer program where fitness activities as well as free health screenings will be offered. These events will be held at various locations in the city with prizes and incentives to help motivate families to get fit. Those incentives include $25,000 in cash and fitness prizes.

District 4 Councilman Rey Saldaña says it's important to be proactive and take preventative measures to stay healthy.

"It is targeted towards the neighborhoods and the communities where we know we have the highest probability with issues with diabetes or heart stress cardiac problems," Saldaña said.

The Fit Family Challenge officially kicks with a free 5K and 10K on Saturday, May 12 at Port San Antonio.
