Olympic Day is held annually on June 23 and is celebrated by millions of people in more than 160 countries. This day commemorates the birth of the modern Olympic Games dating back to June 23, 1894. Olympic Day’s mission is to promote fitness, well-being, culture and education, while promoting the Olympic values – excellence, friendship and respect – and the three Olympic Day pillars – move, learn and discover – in every corner of the globe.
This year, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) has a contest that could land you and a guest to get a chance at a sneak peek of the Olympic Park ahead of the Rio 2016 Summer Games. Check out this link for more information Olympic Day Contest Info!
Impact has joined the celebration this year and will have some fun things this week in the gym to get everyone pumped up for the Road to Rio Olympic Games 2016.
You’ll notice as you walk in the fun photo op for your kids to DREAM BIG and imagine they are holding the torch. If you do get a chance to snap a shot of your kiddo, make sure to tag us at #iscolympicday!
At the back of the gym at our coloring table there is an opportunity for the kids to get creative and design their own torch that will be displayed on the wall.
