ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Over one hundred local youngsters took the track Friday morning at Albany State University's Hampton Sports Complex for the fourth annual "Kids on the Move" event.

Several area sponsors organized the 5-K walk-run and 1-mile fun walk in an effort to fight against childhood obesity - while encouraging kids to get out and exercise.

"This program is about trying to get kids to be physically active. What's the best way during the summer time when they could be inside playing video games, as to get them out to this track running and being physically active. It's just trying to promote health and wellness to the kids," said Eddie McBride with Phoebe-Putney Memorial Hospital.

The first 50 kids that registered for this morning's fun run received backpacks filled with school supplies. Along with bicycle and goodie bag giveaways, prizes were also awarded to winners in three age categories.
