FORT BENNING, GA (WTVM) - Healthy family fun was the name of the game at the Get Fit, Be Strong event on Saturday, March 5.

Military mom Sarah Beasley spoke at the event held at Fort Benning's Blue field. Beasley was featured on the January issue of People Magazine for her dramatic weight loss.

She says she lost 120 pound by changing to a healthier lifestyle. Event organizers say exercise can be a fun thing for the whole family to do together.

"They can run, walk, we have different games set up for the community so they can run around, play around, and bring everybody together," Ramon Barber said, youth sports associate.

The Get Fit, Be Strong event was free to everyone and included a variety of fun healthy activities including sack races, fun run, tug-o-war, musical chairs and lawn bowling.
