Oct. 24, 2012 @ 06:50 AM

HUNTINGTON -- Geneva Kent Elementary School hosted its second annual Healthy Kids, Healthy WV event Tuesday, which included several local health and business officials working with staff and students.

Morning sessions included the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers talking about water safety, the West Virginia Department of Natural Resources discussing poisonous plants and snakes, the Cabell-Huntington Health Department promoting its anti-smoking campaign and St. Mary's Medical Center dropping melons to demonstrate the importance of bike helmets.

A team from Brickhouse Cardio Club conducted two hours of Zumba in the afternoon, while students also were visited by representatives from Pump Up the Fun, the Marshall Recreation Center, the Marshall softball team and a sorority, and the West Virginia Power Street Team.

Tuesday's event coincides with Healthy Kids, Healthy WV Week.
