'Just have a ball' giveaway

Posted: Updated:

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.
