On June 23rd, the WORLD will celebrate Olympic Day! Hundreds of thousands of people of all ages are encouraged to get out and participate in sports activities such as runs, exhibitions, music and educational programs. Olympic Day has helped spread the Olympic ideals all over the world.
This is the 65th anniversary of Olympic Day. It was introduced in 1948 and has been celebrated every year on June 23rd to honor the beginning of the modern Olympic Games on June 23 1894 at the Sorbonne in Paris. The goal of Olympic Day is to promote the Olympic values and participation in sport across the globe.
If you are interested in HOSTING an Olympic event, GREAT! The U.S. Olympic Committee has worked hard to make hosting an Olympic Day event as easy as possible. Essentially, if you can find a location and group of youth who have a morning or afternoon to dedicate to an Olympic Day activity, the USOC will provide the rest. The on-line tools and toolkit provided by the USOC will outline all the necessary steps to host a successful Olympic Day event. The USOC will also endeavor to secure an Olympian, Paralympian or hopeful to attend your Olympic Day event, if desired.
