The Boys & Girls Clubs of South Valley hosted a jump-a-thon on Oct. 15 at its Murray location, celebrating the conclusion of the “Small Steps to Big Futures” healthy lifestyle fundraising campaign. More than 200 club members, ages 3 to 18, shared in the fun that included jump rope relays, double-Dutch competitions, heart rate checks and healthy snacks. Organizers hope the event will bring attention to the number of children who are struggling with obesity-related health concerns.
