JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - More than 10,000 exercise balls have been donated to Mississippi school children, thanks to a non-profit organization.
A brother and sister came up with the idea to help curb childhood obesity.
11-year-old Wilson and 8-year-old Harwell Furr handed out the balls to students at Jackson's Watkins Elementary Wednesday morning.
Their message – "Just Have A Ball".
The pair explained the importance of exercise.
The Furrs joined Chef Luis Bruno and others for a similar presentation at Smith Elementary.
