Children of all ages went from booth to booth at the station theater Friday to learn about being healthy, staying fit and remaining safe on a day-to-day basis.

The children spoke with the fire department, different sections of the Naval Health Clinic, Semper Fit and many local organizations that volunteered to help support the Marine Corps.

“It is important for children to receive this information young,” said Berna Crosby, Semper Fit special events coordinator. “This event was not only good for the children, but the adults as well. It teaches them how to help promote helath and fitness with their children.”

The next special event scheduled to be held by Semper Fit is the Cherry Point Sprint Triathlon and Relay Aug. 17.
