Celebrate Worldwide Day of Play on Sat., Sept. 24
Initiated by Nickelodeon television channel eight years ago, the National Worldwide Day of Play on Sept. 24, fits nicely into National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month.
The Safe Routes to School National Partnership and the First Lady’s “Let’s Move” campaign are teaming up with Nickelodeon to celebrate active play. On Sat., Sept. 24, Nickelodeon network will “go dark” from 12-3 p.m. to encourage kids and parents to shut off the television and find fun activities to do.
As part of living an active, healthy lifestyle, BLEND encourages you and your family to participate in the Worldwide Day of Play!
