In Budapest, the sports brand created ‘Cheer Me On,’ a Facebook app where friends could send digital messages to a screen for runners.

In Hungary, Next Wave Europe created the Facebook app ‘Cheer Me On' for Nike to enhance the experience of runners in the Budapest Half Marathon. The integrated tool connected runners and their friends by delivering digital ‘cheers' and personalized motivational messages.

Thousands used ‘Cheer Me On,' helping the Nike Budapest Half Marathon to become an even stronger community. Check out the video below to learn more about the campaign:
