The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturday, March 19 in the University of Maine at Presque Isle’s Gentile Hall. Student organizers welcome kids ages 5 to 11 to participate in the event, which is designed to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles for local children.

Fit and Fun Day is designed to promote physical activity and healthy lifestyles for local children, while at the same timing allowing Physical Education students to practice their teaching skills. PE majors have been hosting these twice-yearly events for more than 10 years.

This free event is packed full of physical fun for children in the community. For more information, call Dr. Christine Standefer at 768-9457 or by email at christine.standefer@maine.edu.
