KILLEEN, Texas The Killeen Independent School District is helping local families live healthier.

Several families took advantage of Saturday's Family Fitness and Wellness Fair, which gave health checks, hosted cooking demonstrations, and passed on valuable information.

Wellness professionals also provided fun physical activities for kids to promote a healthier lifestyle.

David Cobb, a former running back for the Tennessee Titans and Ellison High School graduate, made a special guest appearance.

He spoke to the kids about the importance of following their dreams.

Organizers of the event hope this helps the community come together and focus on being healthy, stay physically active and be mentally stable.

"We want them to know, its time to put the devices down, and just come together and get away from the television, move around and have fun," said KISD Community Relations director Angenet Wilkerson.

This is the 13th year the event has been offered to families.
