Kids get active for Healthy Kids Day


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Kids in New Hanover County took advantage of the beautiful weather Saturday by getting active.

Healthy Kids Day at Empie Park is an annual event that encourages kids to get off the couch and get outside. The program offered a variety of activities from soccer to roller-racing.

The goal is to introduce parents to all the different programs the county has to offer children.

"It is basically just getting the kids outside and showing them that there are options other than video games and TV," said Cape Fear Soccer Club's Kenny Bundy. "There are things in our community that they can do where they are being active."

Bundy says New Hanover County is full of programs and people that want kids to be happy and healthy. He says kids interested in soccer can register for Cape Fear Soccer Club next week.
