Saints player brings a message to coast kids

PASS CHRISTIAN, MS (WLOX) - Mississippi scored among the lowest in the nation when it came to good oral health. Saints wide receiver Marques Colston hopes to change that starting today.

Colston will cheer on about 300 children in the Gulf Coast Boys & Girls Club as they participate in a mass "brush-a-thon." the event includes free dental screenings, oral health education and treatment referrals. Colston will also issue a challenge to the kids involving their dental care.

WLOX News will be there when Colston cheers on South Mississippi children to good oral health and you can hear his message later today on wlox.com and WLOX News.
