Marking the birth of the modern Olympic Games, Olympic Day is not only a celebration, but an international effort to promote fitness and well-being in addition to the Olympic ideals of Fair Play, Perseverance, Respect and Sportsmanship. It is celebrated annually on June 23rd, by thousands of people in more than 160 countries.
Last year, more than 200,000 Americans celebrated Olympic Day by participating in 832 Olympic Day events hosted in 690 cities across all 50 states. Americans also celebrated in 10 overseas locations, making last year the most successful Olympic Day celebration ever in the United States.
This year, New Jersey hosts its Olympic Week celebration from June 13-23, 2014 to showcase Olympic sports through educational programming, demonstrations, and other activities hosted by local organizations sponsoring these sports. Local Olympians and Paralympians in your area will participate at various Olympic Day events to share their personal story and inspire those in attendance with Olympic messaging.
