Nick celebrates largest ever worldwide day of play

Nickelodeon held the largest ever Worldwide Day of Play event at the Ellipse in Washington, DC yesterday. Fifty partner organizations, “Let’s Move” and the President’s Council on Fitness joined with Nickelodeon stars and famous athletes like Superstar Abby Wambach to host its largest event ever. Nick held an entire day of physical activities and games for kids and their families to encourage active and healthy lifestyles. For the eight year in Nick actually shut down its TV programming and Web sites from noon to 3 p.m.

WWDOP began in 2004 as a part of Nickelodeon’s The Big Help initiative, a kid-led movement for positive change focusing on four key issues: the environment, education, health and wellness, and community service.

We hope you and your kids got out and played this weekend and will continue to stay fit with the start of Autumn!
