September 29th is the 4th Annual Worldwide Day of Play, sponsored by Nickelodeon, which began its Let's Just Play campaign in 2003. The long-term, nationwide campaign is designed to engage kids in active, healthy lifestyles by giving them the resources they need to get up, get out, and go play. On September 29th, the network will go dark for three hours to give children the message that they should turn off the TV and go outside to play.
