The Southeast Tulsa Rotary Club held its annual FitFest on Saturday.
The event was held at the OU - Tulsa Schusterman Center in the 4500 block of East 41st Street from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
Activities included the President's Fitness Challenge for kids aged 6 to 12, a one-mile Family Fun Run/Walk, an Inflatable Zone for Kids, Healthy Food Choices, and bicycle giveaways from Bikes for Tykes.
"Obesity is a problem with our children," said Southeast Tulsa Rotary Club representative Victoria Bartlett. "What I say to children is that I'm giving them homework, and their homework is they need to go outside and play."
The FitFest also featured health screenings and a blood drive.
Proceeds will benefit the OU Tulsa Community Medicine Clinics and the Southeast Tulsa Rotary Foundation, helping meet wellness needs in Tulsa and around the world.
