More than 150 school children have taken part in the inaugural Nash Kids Day held at Prince Hamzeh Hall in Al Hussein Sports City.
Nash was announced as the Jordan Olympic Committee’s children’s ambassador last month with a mission to encourage more youngsters to embrace sport and healthy living in their lives.
And it was a day to remember for the kids who met their idol, Nash, and joined him for two hours of fun activity, culminating in a pledge that win or lose they should always show respect, play fair, try their best, be healthy and have fun. All the children were then welcomed as members of the Nash Club.
The children came from several schools that are part of the Royal Health Awareness Society’s Healthy Schools Accreditation Programme which is encouraging schools to create a healthier environment for their pupils
Nash is proving a big hit with youngsters and the ‘Story of Nash’ cartoon has already been watched on You Tube nearly 2,000 times.
