GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - It was a field of fun for some kids in Gulfport Saturday. Hands On Gulf Coast organized a field day for kids in Boys and Girls Clubs from Waveland to D'Iberville.

Field day events ran from 11:30am to 4:30pm and included eight stations of fun.  The event was part of Hands On's year long effort called Healthy Living Initiative.

The goal is to get kids on the coast to live healthier more active lives.  The local 4-H club brought in volunteers for the field day.

Hands On also plans to donate $500.00 to Boys and Girls Clubs on the coast to buy sports equipment.
