JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (Sept. 25, 2010) - The ETSU men's and women's basketball team, along with other athletic department personnel, volunteered their time Saturday morning to help out at the Niswonger Children's Hospital's Family Activity Day.
 
The event, which was held inside the ETSU/Mountain States Health Alliance Athletic Center, was sponsored by multiple organizations, including MSHA, Fit Kids, the Kohl's "Kids on the Move" program, and ETSU athletics.

 
"It's important for our program to be involved in community service and this was a great opportunity to help support an important effort," said ETSU men's basketball head coach Murry Bartow. "Athletics is about being fit and developing healthy habits that can help a person throughout their life. This day is all about attempting to do that as well."

 
The Family Activity Day focuses on showing parents and children different ways to spend active time together. Multiple events were made available for participants, including inflatable games, Wii Fit stations, and jump rope activities.

 
In addition, MSHA's Health Resource Center provided health screenings for blood pressure and body mass index to those that attended.

 
"We are glad to do our part and help out," said ETSU women's basketball head coach Karen Kemp. "Staying active is so important to a person's quality of life. Hopefully, we were able to promote that to parents and kids today."
