HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Kids in Hampton Cove had a healthy, good time at the Annie Apple Get Active Day.

Children in the area ran, rode bikes and did yoga at the Hampton Cove Greenway.

The event was part of the Junior League's biggest fundraiser. They're taking donations to buy 30,000 apples to give students throughout Madison County.

"We're trying to get kids active in the community. Hopefully, getting them involved in something like this at a young age will increase the likelihood of them staying involved in activities and healthy lifestyle choices in the future," said Emily Johnson with the Junior League of Huntsville.

Donations will be accepted through October 5.

    New Orleans sits atop an ancient barrier island

    To the casual observer, this looks like any other section of marsh. However, this spot in extreme Eastern New Orleans-- almost at the St. Tammany Parish line-- is unique.
