In Mon County on Saturday, the WVU Children's Hospital held their 15th Annual Kids Fair at the Morgantown Mall.
Well over a hundred volunteers along with WVU Children's Hospital employees were on hand with 51 different exhibits to teach healthy lifestyle choices to kids. There were stations for proper hand washing and how to eat well, but there were also games and prizes for the kids to win. They all had the same theme--keeping your child healthy.
"I love seeing the babies come in and just teaching families about healthy babies and car seats safety and hand washing. Our hand washing booth is really fun with kids," said Christine Haufey, a Community Health Nurse Clinician with WVU Children's Hospital.
The Children's Hospital sees the Kids Fair as an opportunity to give back to the community, since they have been very important in keeping the WVU Children's Hospital open.
"Just interacting with the community and being able to give back, provide some wellness. Our job really is to take care of all the mom's and children in the whole state of West Virginia," Children's Hospital Executive Director Cheryl Jones told 5 News.
Other popular booths included tests in flexibility and strength, lung function, motor skills development, and vision.
