I find the Olympics inspiring. I am amazed by how hard many of the athletes push themselves from a young age, overcome failure and adversity, and depend on fellow teammates. When I found out about this program I thought it would be great to spread awareness. 

Sports are important in our family because they teach the following things: discipline, agility, team work, and perseverance. I am trying to instill these values in my daughter no matter how good she is at sports. I believe everyone can benefit from exercize. 

I also find it inspiring when people in the public sphere use their power for the good of others. I love this program that will help programs in need. Nine U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes are raising awareness for nine programs to help athletes. Citi donated $500,000 to the Olympics and people get to vote to decide where the money goes. 

You can help decide where it goes with just a click! Spread the word about this amazing program and the chance to give back during this exciting season! 

Here are the 9 programs in need and the 9 Olympians who are supporting them:
