JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - On Saturday, Jackson area students had a chance to exercise their bodies before they exercise their minds at school.
More than a dozen stations were set up to allow the kids to stretch and flex their muscle. They also learned health tips. After completing all stations, they were given a free book bag full of school supplies, compliments of the American Heart Association and Allstate Insurance.
"We're adamant making sure every child in the Jackson area can go back with proper materials and supplies," said Steven James with Allstate Insurance. "We don't want the supplies to be the reason that the children won't have a successful school year."
A Nintendo Wii was tucked into one of those book bags for one lucky child.
