Fitness, Worldwide Day of Play, Youth | September, 19 2013

This Saturday, September 21, Nickelodeon will host its 10th annual Worldwide Day of Play (WWDoP) kickoff event at Prospect Park in Brooklyn, New York.  Over the past decade, Nickelodeon has been a leader in developing and delivering positive messages and initiatives to encourage youth and families worldwide to adopt a healthy lifestyle. Nickelodeon's well-known talent and characters like Big Time Rush, SpongeBob Squarepants, and Dora the Explorer are visible ambassadors for their pro-social initiatives and will greet young fans and their families at the Prospect Park celebration.

The President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition (PCFSN) is thrilled to participate as a key partner for Nickelodeon's milestone celebration. PCFSN will host an activity zone featuring a fun obstacle course for pre-school aged youth in the Nick Jr. area of the park.

As an added incentive for families to get outside and play, Nickelodeon will suspend programming on all of their channels from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. (ET/PT). More than 30 national and local partners participating in this year’s event including the NFL, NBA, USTA, Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and YMCA of Greater NY.
