“We are excited to take part in Olympic Day and inspire kids in the Roswell community,” said Perry Told, event organizer. “TNT is proud to support the Olympic Movement encouraging everyone to lead healthy, active lives.”
The TNT Olympic Day activity is one of more than 700 events taking place nationwide between June 14 and 30. The events, designed to engage youth and promote the ideals of the Olympic movement, feature athlete appearances, family-friendly activities and interactive learning experiences.
Around the world, more than 160 countries take part in the annual celebration. Olympic Day, created in 1948 to commemorate the birth of the modern Olympic Games, focuses on the Olympic values and ideals such as fair play, perseverance, respect and sportsmanship.
In the U.S., Olympic Day events range from small gatherings to large, city-wide events.
