From the DPD:
Our mission is to build bridges between youth and officers while promoting leadership and teamwork through sports and positive engagement that will help to shape our future leaders!
To support our mission and end the summer with some teamwork and fun– we are inviting youth ages 12-17 to participate in our Youth All-Star Olympics! Come ready for some exciting competition as participants challenge other teams in skill-based Basketball, Football, Obstacle Course run and SO much more! Participants will receive a custom event T-shirt, have the chance to meet both former and current local celebrity athletes, and have a shot at winning an Olympic medal!
Lunch and refreshments will be provided for participants. Food trucks will also be onsite with food for purchase.
