Earlier this year, Nick kicked off its “Road to Worldwide Day of Play” initiative, a summer-long celebration of play that made stops across the country to empower kids to get up and get active. Events were held in partnership with the Andre Agassi Foundation for Education; Boys & Girls Clubs of America; NFL PLAY 60 and the Jacksonville Jaguars; Derek Jeter’s Turn 2 Foundation; and Dwyane Wade’s Wade’s World Foundation.
