The Flint Farmer's Market is a source of fresh and healthy foods and Saturday the market promoted healthy kids.
Kohl's along with Hurley Children's Hospital are working together to combat childhood obesity.
Kohl's presented the Hurley Foundation with a $103,000 check that will go toward children's health programs in the community.
It's all part of the Hurley Kohl's Cares for Healthy Kids program.
Saturday, the market provided opportunities for kids to get up and move, make healthy snacks and taste healthy foods.
"It's so important and we want the community to be healthier. Genesee County is one of the most unhealthy communities in all of Michigan so we think it's a goal of ours to change that and make everybody a little more healthy," said Danielle Campbell, community wellness manager, Hurley Medical Center.
Kohl's has donated more than $900,000 to Hurley over the past seven years.
The funds come from the Kohl's Cares initiative.
Kohl's sells books and toys where 100% of the proceeds benefit children's health and education programs.
