Corpus Christi Olympic Day Events Scheduled

15 Apr, 2015


Corpus Christi Sports Alliance Reaching out to Area Olympians

Representatives from sailing, BMX, basketball, physical fitness and the Olympic movement conversed on exhibitions of Olympic Sports, Olympic hopefuls and the importance of showing the community opportunities that are offered through the Olympic Movement. As the world celebrates, International Day of Sport, the Corpus Christi Sports Alliance, along with area sports organizations, met to discuss Olympic Day 2015 for Corpus Christi.

The spirit of the Olympic Movement will roll into Corpus Christi, June 20-23, 2015 as various sports organizations host events in celebration of Olympic Day. As a community we are proud to support the Olympic Movement and encourage children to lead healthy, active lives. The events are 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.
