RICHMOND, Va. -- Good habits like staying active and eating well are important to leading a healthy lifestyle.

Glennys Fleming, who is a heart attack and stroke survivor, has made it her mission to share those lessons with children.

CBS 6 reporter Shelby Brown wanted to recognize Fleming for her great community work in the latest edition of CBS 6 Gives.

"Because you do so much for other people, we just thought let's give her something that so that she can just do something for herself," said Brown, who presented Fleming with a gift card and some other CBS 6 goodies.

"Thank you so much," said Fleming.

"One of the things that I try to do with them is to make sure that they just understand their own bodies and what they put in it... because it's always something that we can do to make a difference in our own lives. And I think a lot of them have started hearing it better now and they're doing better and making better choices with it."
