Harambe Wellness is inviting you and your kids to get moving this weekend at their 4th annual Active & Healthy Kids Day.

Harambe Wellness is focused on helping everyone in our community lead a healthy lifestyle.

The day gets started on Saturday, October 9th at 10am at the Coolidge Park Gym, and it's free for anyone that would like to attend.

The day is focused around getting kids into healthy activities, but it's not just for kids. The entire family is encouraged to come out and participate in the healthy activities.

There are a variety of activities that you can participate in, but you should register here before going. Here is the lineup of events from the registration page.

Events like this from Harambe Wellness are all part of the bigger picture plan to help Flint fully recover from the trauma of the last 10 years.

Our city was still in recovery mode from the Flint Water Crisis when the Covid pandemic took hold. The long lasting health problems could be catastrophic if there were no programs to help get people out and moving. That's why the work that Harambe is doing is so important. By taking a community approach to an active and health lifestyle, it's easier for everyone to support each other.

Our Top 16 Songs That Mention Michigan in the Lyrics

Right off the top of your head, you can think of two or three songs that mention Michigan or Michigan cities in the Lyrics, right?

But we decided to dig a little deeper and came up with 16 songs that mention the Mitten State. Surprisingly, Michigan-born artists like Stevie Wonder and Madonna don't make the list, but Bob Seger has a whopping three songs that make mention of his home state.

Let us know if there are any essential Michigan songs that need to be included.
