When #TheDreys were invited by our good friend Treena Tecson to join the first ever Nickelodeon Slime Cup Run, we didn’t have to think twice because we knew that it would be fun! Afterall, my husband has been joining runs lately, while my kids are into sports as well… So, we naturally said yes immediately. Too bad I wasn’t able to join the fun due to a foot injury. Staying behind meant that I’d be left with the camera to document the run.
Lots of fun and slime at the Nickelodeon Slime Cup Run
The first ever Nickelodeon Slime Cup Run was held at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds at 6AM.
- 3K run for families and all ages
- 1K run for participants and their pets
- 200 meter dash for kids ages 7 years and below
To make it even more exciting, a Slime Shower awaits every runner who makes it to the finish Slime. How cool is that?
Runners who brought along their cute furball friends, on the other hand, also had a fantastic time. I wish our li’l Max would be able to join and experience a fun run, too, in the future. I just don’t think he’ll enjoy getting slimed, though! 😉
But, the biggest winners of the event were the shelter dogs of the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), the official beneficiary of the Nickelodeon Slime Cup Run.
Viacom Country Manager Dinna Zaratan gave a SpongeBob plush toy to PAWS senior volunteer Sharon Yap as a symbol of the turnover of proceeds to the shelter.
After the race, attendees checked out the Slime Hub lined with activity booths from Nickelodeon’s partners: Barbie, BOOMco, Hapee Kiddie Toothpaste, Jiggels, Magnolia Chocolait, Milkita Lollipos, Plus! Juice Drink, Propan TLC Drops with Zinc, Skechers Kids, and Toy Kingdom. The dogs also got their fair share of fun at the Pet Express tent.
The Nickelodeon Slime Cup Run is part of Nickelodeon’s global Slime Cup campaign, which sees Nickelodeon’s live action stars competing head-to-head in various sports challenges and Slime Cup games. Fans who were not able to join the awesome run in Manila, or simply want more fun, can join in on the action online by supporting their favorite stars and playing digital games at slimecup.com from June 20 to August 7 to get the chance to win their own Slime Cup trophy or medal.
Nickelodeon Slime Cup Run Philippines brought the authentic Nickelodeon experience to fans in Manila and lived up to its promise of fun and slime for everyone! It was indeed, as SpongeBob SquarePants puts it, the perfect day out.
