LA84 Newsletter, Volume 7
Every year on June 23, the world celebrates Olympic Day and the motto of the Games - Citius, Altius, Fortius. Translated: Faster, Higher, Stronger. Each of LA84's next three newsletters before Olympic Day focuses on one of these elements. April's edition hones in on Faster - the race for Olympic equality, a sprinter motivating the next generation, or pioneering sportswomen rapidly transforming their fields. This month, join LA84 and me in the race to keep changing lives and shaping our future leaders through sport.
Together, we can go faster.
In gratitude,
Renata Simril, President & CEO, LA84 Foundation
