Albany - - An Albany sorority spent the day educating kids and teenagers of the importance of maintaining good health.

Delta Sigma Theta Sorority sponsored its Annual May Day Celebration for youth today. Students got the chance to get health screenings for cholesterol, blood pressure, and diabetes. They also received information to take home. Organizers say teaching youth about these issues now is critical.

"We want to start early because we feel that we can get them into physical fitness at an early age and how important it is to stay healthy, then when they get older, they won't have that problem," says

The theme of the event was "Keep your Mind Right and your Body Tight".  May Day began as a Spring festival many years ago. Traditionally, people would gather on the first day of May to celebrate the coming of Summer.
