DANVILLE, Va. (WDBJ7) Danville is being recognized for its commitment to the health and wellness of children.
It's been named "Playful City USA" for ninth straight year.
It's one of only two cities in Virginia to get the title and the only one to hold the title that long!
KaBOOM! is the national non-profit behind the award and helps Danville put together events like the Autism Awareness 5k and the Children's Festival each year.
The goal is to give kids, especially from low-income families the chance to get the active play they need to succeed in their hometown.
