Nickelodeon fans who participated at the first-ever Nickelodeon Slime Cup Run held at the SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds, now have their own slime story to tell. Thousands of runners of all ages had a wacky and fantastic time at the ultimate summer event for the whole family—packed with games, surprises, prizes and lots of slime.
Over 3,000 runners comprised of families, their little ones and four-legged friends, came to race to the finish slime. The three race categories, 1K and 3K run, and 200m dash for kids, were met with such gusto from the runners.
On one hand, they enjoyed dodging a squad of ninjas and making their way through an obstacle course in the middle of the race track. The kids, on the other hand, had a blast sprinting to a slime shower and making new friends along the way.
Runners who brought their canine bestfriends also had a pleasurable run with their tandem. Aside from the superb memory of running with their dog captured in photos, they also experienced being slimed together.
Nickelodeon Slime Cup ambassadors SpongeBob SquarePants and Patrick Star were in attendance as well, gracing every race’s starting pistol, much to the delight of their fans. The lovable duo of Bikini Bottom also performed for everyone’s enjoyment.
All top three race finishersand owner-and-pet tandems were awarded with a Slime Cup trophy and exclusive Nickelodeon loot bag. Special prizes were also given to outstanding runners.
But, the biggest winners of the event were the shelter dogs of the Philippine Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), the officialbeneficiary 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 theproceeds to the shelter.
