On Saturday, September 24th, 2011, Nickelodeon presented its 8th Annual Worldwide Day of Play, a full day dedicated to inspiring kids and families across the globe to lead more active and healthy lifestyles. The Ellipse on the National Mall in Washington D.C. served as our global headquarters.
Gabby flew to D.C. on Saturday to be a part of Nickelodeon’s World Wide Day of Play. She was one of the 6 celebrity coaches for the “Battle of the Nick Stars Obstacle Coarse”. If you happened to watch then you know her team won. Good job Gabby!
This year, President Obama and the First Lady turned off all of Nickelodeon’s on-air programming. Nickelodeon went dark for 3 hours from 12-3pm, to encourage kids across the country and around the world to go outside and play.
