Odessa, TX (Local Big 2 News) - Over 500 people competed in the annual Dr. Daniel Cepero Track Meet at Ratliff stadium this weekend.

Track meet officials say the track and field meet is held as a way to remember and honor Dr. Cepero.

Dr. Cepero was a pediatrician who suddenly passed away in 2003.

Track meet officials tell Local Big 2 Dr. Cepero was an advocate for children's health and worked to fight childhood obesity.

"It's a way to keep children active and healthy all summer long and take them away from television and video games," said Stella Neboh, coordinator for the Dr. Daniel Cepero Track Meet.

Children aged two and older came from all over the state including Dallas, Lubbock, Kermit and more.
