Olympic Fun Day Is Set For Saturday, July 28

Patch is excited to be joining with First Lady Michelle Obama for Olympic Fun Day.

There’s something about watching Olympic athletes that makes you want to get off the couch and go break a world record.

Well, maybe not a world record. But at least run around outside.

Which is why Patch is excited to be joining with First Lady Michelle Obama for Olympic Fun Day. The first lady is leading the U.S. Olympic delegation at the Summer Games opening ceremonies in London on Friday July 27. Her fitness initiative, Let’s Move, and Patch are teaming up to bring Olympic sports to life for you and your family in your town. Here's how:

1. If you (or anyone you know) are interested in trying an Olympic sport, check out Partnership for a Healthier America’s website, where you can track down professionals who offer instruction in your region in everything from swimming to cycling to track and field.

2. You can find local Olympic Fun Day events on the First Lady’s Let’s Move website, which right now has a great page about how to set up your own local Olympics, full of fun and fresh air!

3. Check out our Directory and Events Calendar - we have listings for places that teach everything from karate to weight training. In our calendar of events, you can find day camps where you could learn archery or play soccer. Or if you are looking for a great venue to watch events that are more fun with a crowd, check out our listing of great local sports bars.

And don't forget to go for the gold!

Better tell her to go home to the White House and start packing for their January move back to Somalia or wherever they came from.

Bill Palmer, please be NIGGARDLY with your uneducated condescending comments; Mrs. Obama was born in the U.S.A., EVEN THOUGH Harrison J. Bounel aka Barak Mounir Ubayd AKA "Barack Hussein Obama" was not. Now go act like SEA MEN & MASTICATE on something HARD! ok, BILL???

I have to admit that sometimes my comments disgust even myself and this was one of them. Worse yet, I was wrong about the election. And believe it or not, I actually like Ms. Obama, she is a breath of fresh air amongst recent First Ladies....just Mr. Obama's policies that I think are deleterious to the nation at times.
