Cartoon Network partnered with the Mumbai Juniorthon that was held on December 4, 2016, to encourage kids of Mumbai to run towards a healthier future and enabled the Cartoon Network brand to reach out to over 3000 children and more than 10,000 parents. Excitement, enthusiasm and fun was what made up this event a memorable one, while supporting a good cause.
Joining the kids on Sunday were our toons – Ben10 and Kris from Roll No. 21, who flagged off the marathon with celebrity mom and popular TV host, Tara Sharma, much to the delight of the participants. A special Ben10 themed stall with a photo-booth and ‘Score a Goal’ game was specially created in the carnival area for Ben10 fans. The carnival area also had a lot of fun-filled interactive activities and games in stalls to keep the kids engaged.
The highlight of the carnival was a special performance by Ben10 and Kris on some peppy and foot-tapping numbers to spread the message of leading a healthy lifestyle. It was a dream come true for the kids as they got a chance to click selfies with their favourite toons at the Mumbai Juniorthon, a souvenir they will always cherish.
