MANILA, AUGUST 10, 2021 – With quarantine measures extended and kids continuing to stay home, parents are looking for new creative ways to entice their younger ones to get moving. The good news is The Great Cartoon Network Workout starts on Saturday, August 21.
Through the initiative, families can sign up for a month filled with themed weekly events with topics on health and fitness. On top of that, kids can enjoy various activities alongside friends from their favorite shows like We Bare Bears, The Amazing World of Gumball, Teen Titans Go!, and many others.
A Fun-Filled Competition
Is your family up for the challenge? Fitness Coaches Melissa Gohing, Enzo Bonoan, Jo Sebastian, and Eileen Ramos will lead the challenges through Toon Challenge Zones that will get both kids and kids-at-heart to get moving, so make sure you do your stretches and get ready to sweat!
For those who are feeling a little more competitive, you can enter as a Fit Fam Challenger and upload your videos for a chance to win awesome prizes! Don’t worry, if you aren’t the competitive type, you can still watch the uploaded videos weekly and interact with the website’s other features like the photobooth.
Cartoon Network has also partnered with schools in the Philippines to make this an exhilarating school activity for kids. Look forward to getting active if you’re a student of Southfields International Christian Academe Centrum (SICAC), Jose Rizal University, Saint Jude Catholic School, Elizabeth Seton School, St. Mary of the Woods, Xavier School, Childlink Learning Center and Childlink High School, and others!
Get your pump on to win prizes!
Families don’t just get their muscles moving, but they also get a chance to win exciting prizes during the awarding ceremony. Each week, the top three Fit Fam Challengers with the highest points will be selected as the weekly winners and win prizes from Cartoon Network.
The Grand Prize goes to the top fit fam who rises highest in the challenges will win their very own Cartoon Network home learning package.
