Americus (August 9, 2014)  -- More than 250 children came out on a picture perfect day in Southwest Georgia for Phoebe Sumter’s 3rd Annual Children’s Health Conference, which was held at Americus Sumter South Campus’ gymnasium and adjacent fields.

The theme was once again “Get Fit, Get Active, Get Healthy”, and there were free health screenings, vendors from across South Georgia and a number of agencies that were geared towards children and their overall health.  School supplies and other items were given away, and the children had an opportunity to partake in a number of games and activities, including basketball, Zumba and football drills with the Americus Sumter varsity football team.  The Sumter County Sheriff Department & Fire Department, as well as the Sumter County Health Department & DFACS, were also on hand to provide services to both the children and their parents.

“On behalf of Phoebe Sumter Administration and staff, I would like to thank all of the volunteers who helped make this event possible,” said Marcus Johnson, Regional Marketing Manager for Phoebe.  “A special thanks to all of the parents who brought their children to this event as well as to Americus Sumter South campus for hosting this event.  We look forward to an even bigger and better event for the kids in 2014!”
