Are you a Looney Tunes Fan?! Coach Rio de la Cruz is bringing us the Looney Tunes Active! Program 2010 here in the Philippines!
Check out the information about this event, re-posted from RunRio.com website.
What is Looney Tunes Active!?
Warner Bros. Consumer Products (WBCP) launched the Looney Tunes Active! as its contribution to global efforts to promote an active and healthier lifestyle for children. Looney Tunes Active! aims to encourage an active lifestyle among its target market, primarily children, and their families, by engaging in sports and other physical activities while having fun at the same time. Looney Tunes Active! shows kids that being active is cool!
Why Looney Tunes?
They’re DYNAMIC. They’re HILARIOUS. And they’re ON THE MOVE!
Looney Tunes characters are active by nature. Their high-energy humour continues to thrill audiences young and old. And because of their active perpetual motion, they’re one of the few character brands that stand for an active lifestyle.
WBCP sees this as an opportunity to use the popularity and positive perception of the Looney Tunes characters to support initiatives that promote a more active lifestyle for kids.
Looney Tunes Active! in Other Territories
Due to its success in Europe, the Looney Tunes Active! program is now being implemented in Southeast Asia and Greater China, specifically, the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, Hong Kong and China.
