NASHVILLE, Tenn., May 25, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Today, GoNoodle launches its newest game, Coach Terry's Touchdown!, powered by Fuel Up to Play 60. This new, free game brings the same energy to get kids jumping, ducking, dodging, and holding a pose while creating positivity for millions of kids and families.
"As we emerge from the pandemic, we have seen the significant impact it has had on our kids, from raised levels of stress and depression to lack of movement based on all Zoom/no PE," says KC Estenson, CEO of GoNoodle. "Families are searching for safe, compelling entertainment that inspires kids to move. Our mission aligns with Fuel Up to Play 60 and America's Dairy Farmers as we all have the same goal to find joyful, fun ways to get kids physically, mentally, and emotionally healthier."
Coach Terry's Touchdown! brings kiddos' and families' love of the game right into their home. GoNoodle Character Coach Terry, will focus their energy as they jog down the field, duck to avoid flying foam fingers, and collect milk, yogurt, and smoothies to keep their energy up and win bonus points as they try to score as many touchdowns as possible in 60 seconds. At the end of each level, they can celebrate with a victory dance and a virtual smoothie.
"Fuel Up to Play 60 has always been committed to working with parents, educators and students to make healthy changes in schools, communities and their own bodies," said Anne Warden, Executive Vice President of Youth Programs at Dairy Management Inc. "This shared commitment is why we've partnered with both GoNoodle and the NFL to create another fun and engaging way for kids to power up with delicious dairy while staying active!"
This new mini-game will be the first game within the GoNoodle Games suite that lets players directly challenge a friend or family member to compete using a split screen within the game. Kids will now be able to battle their siblings and friends, making the game an interactive activity where families can move together.
