Cross Country Ski Association takes part in international day celebrating
Olympic values and ideals
Central Cross Country Ski Association (CXC) announced today that an Olympic Day celebration will be held on June 25 from 1PM to 4PM at the Premier Physical Medicine and Wellness Clinic, 1446 Hwy 47, Woodruff, WI. Olympic Day will be a special event featuring Olympic athletes, skill improvement lessons for many sports, and sports-related games for kids and families of all ability levels.
Amateur athletics is very important to the northwoods communities, and physical activity of any kind helps to keep our citizens healthier.
The United States Olympic Committee (USOC) celebrates Olympic Day annually with events at the Olympic Training Centers and official training sites, as well as coordinating activities with affiliated sport National Governing Bodies and multi-sport organizations. This year, through a partnership with our nation's athletes and community based organizations, Olympic Day celebrations have expanded to cities across the country. In each community, the program will encourage physical activity and promote the Olympic values of fair play, cooperation and respect for others.
Today's announcement of Olympic Day in Woodruff, WI, and the community's cooperative celebration with other cities will send a clear message to the International Olympic Committee that Central Cross Country Ski Association, Woodruff, WI and the United States of America support the Olympic Movement in the United States.
Olympic Day is a worldwide commemoration of Baron Pierre de Coubertin's June 23, 1894, convening of the first International Olympic Committee meeting at the Sorbonne in Paris, and the founding of the Modern Olympic Games. National Olympic Committees throughout the world will also participate in the international celebration, with each Olympic Committee sending Olympic Day greetings to participating nations.
