Group challenges West Tennesseans to drink water

HENDERSON COUNTY, Tenn. – With rising temperatures and lots of outdoor activities during the summer, an organization is encouraging many people to increase their water intake.

The University of Tennessee Extension Office in Henderson County created a water challenge to encourage people to increase their daily water intake.

The challenge begins on August 1 and continues throughout the month.

Challenge participants will receive a consumption sheet to track the amount of water they consume during the month-long contest.

“I have several registered right now, but we want you guys to register from Henderson County or surrounding counties. Share the information with your friends and family, or challenge them, or go together and challenge each other,” said Kathy Brown, family and consumer sciences officer at UT Extension in the county of Henderson.

At the end of the month, they will collect the numbers of all the participants and offer prizes to those who rank among the best.

They allow people to register for the challenge until July 28th. You can register here.

After completing the form, you will be contacted with more information regarding the competition.

The surprise prizes will be awarded to the top 3 competitors who have consumed the most water during the month. For more information, you can contact the UT Extension Office in Henderson County at (731) 968-5266.
