The district-wide event featured kids' activities and community booths with information on how to provide nutrition for families. Throughout the event, families had the opportunity to help save a life through the "Be The Match" campaign.

"This year we have some additional booths. We have the Be The Match group, which is the group that helps getting bone marrow donors," USD 501 Superintendent Dr. Tiffany Anderson said. "The leukemia table and the sickle cell table, both are really intended to make sure we bring awareness to cancer and let people know that you can do something to save a life right now."

Performances were given by the Topeka West Cheerleaders, the Topeka High School Drumline, Sunflower Strength and Conditioning, and Evolution Gymnastics.

Fitness Family Fun Night modeled what being in shape is all about, and showed how being fit is a fun, family activity.
