Local students take advantage of free sports physical clinic

WICHITA FALLS, TX - In preparation for sporting activities next year, hundreds of junior high and high school students got their physical Thursday evening.
The Community Healthcare Center, located at 200 Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard, offered a free sports physical.
It was open to all junior high and high school students.
Allen Patterson, CEO of the Community Health Care Center, says it is about helping the youth in the community.
    "This is our way of being able to give them that first step in the process," Patterson said. "And do something to show this community how much we care for the youth of the community."
The first 300 students received a free t-shirt for participating.
The event was open to students from surrounding private schools and other school districts in addition to WFISD students.
