This family friendly event will be held Saturday, Aug. 29, 9 a.m.-noon at Stadium Park in Canton. Children 8-12 years old are encouraged to participate, and parents and siblings are encouraged to come along and Play 60.
At the event each participant will receive a small breakfast, an event shirt, and swag bag. The participants will then get moving by visiting activity booths along Stadium Park track. Each booth will teach a lesson in getting active, eating healthily, and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. After completing the track course, all the students will partake in the group obstacle course.
