Local middle school students are getting physical.
Students at Lucy Addison in Roanoke and their parents, along with volunteers, threw a carnival to raise money to purchase more equipment for their fitness center.
The fitness center was open to the public until several months back when the equipment was taken out.
"It's time to step up and take care of our own and our community," says Addison Middle School Coach. "They've rallied behind us, and together we are going to achieve great things."
The day started with a motorcycle ride, which was also part of the fundraiser.
The goal was to bring in about $5,000.
