Somerville's fitness challenge is back, and this year Somerville Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone is calling for recruits to join his fitness challenge team.
The friendly competition, in its third year, is part of the city's ongoing effort to promote healthy eating and lifestyles.
Residents interested in joining Curtatone's squad should submit written applications of less than 100 words explaining why they should be on the team.
Winners for the three spots will be coached in fitness and nutrition by the mayor. Last year, Curtatone's team placed second in the contest, which uses weight loss and body mass index to calculate winners.
Entrants must be 18 or older. Entries may be e-mailed to Denise Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org, or posted to facebook.com/somervillecity.
The deadline to be considered is March 26 at 3 p.m.
