A few weeks ago I flew out to LA to film some stuff for the USOC’s new fund-raising campaign “Together We Win“. Leading up to July 4th weekend their will be a number of “Olympic Day” events around the country.
Jason Rogers, James Williams and I will be speaking to several hundred children in Dallas, Texas during their ”Olympic Day” activities. This should be announced soon by the USFA. Fingers crossed that we will be involved in the NYC Olympic Day Activities!!
Here is the USOC Press Release:
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – The United States Olympic Committee (USOC) today is launching a new initiative in the lead-up to the Fourth of July that provides Americans with opportunities to show their national pride and be part of the Olympic mission through “America Supports Team USA.” This new fundraising campaign, which incorporates the tagline “Together We Win,” celebrates patriotism and raises money to support Olympic and Paralympic athletes and hopefuls. By further emphasizing the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Teams’ connection with USA around the most patriotic time of the year, the campaign will allow the USOC to continue to bring programming to communities throughout the U.S. and support more Americans who want to pursue Olympic and Paralympic dreams.
