Nickelodeon’s Worldwide Day of Play & America’s PreparAthon!

An estimated 2,000 attendees of all ages enjoyed Nickelodeon’s Worldwide Day of Play at Peterson AFB on September 26.

The focus of the annual Worldwide Day of Play event is the fight against childhood obesity. Nickelodeon’s global message asks children to turn off the TV and the video games, to get off the couch, and … get up, get out and go play!

Hosted by the RP Lee Youth Center, this year’s event at Peterson AFB welcomed America’s PreparAthon!, the Color Run 2k, and the Family Healthy Cooking Contest to present one huge, outdoor play and prepare fest.
