It’s finally time for the Olympics!! While I’ve always been a fan, I’ve been looking forward to this even more after my day at the Olympic Training Center last year. While I’m writing this post, I’m watching a special about Sochi and the new events debuting at these games. I’m a proud Olympic geek!!

One thing you may not now, is that Team USA relies on private funds to follow their Olympic and Paralympic dreams. Citi is not only a Team USA sponsor, but they’ve also committed $1 million to the U.S. Olympic Committee to help support our nation’s athletes through the Citi Every Step of the Way program. This initiative helps future athletes reach their full potential through U.S. Olympic, Paralympic and Community Programs – like support for wounded service members, figure skating in Harlem, expanding the sport of luge to new regions, and many more.
Watch this video to hear more from the athletes about this program:
It’s so easy for you to get involved in choosing the programs that Citi will support.

On each athlete’s page, you can learn more about their program.To vote for a program, click the big orange button on the bottom of the page.
Once you’ve voted, help me spread the word by sharing about the program on your favorite social networks. You can use the share buttons on this post to make that easy as pie!
