Come share an action-packed afternoon with the VSU Hearts Everywhere Reaching Out for Children (HERO) Olympics.
The HERO Olympics is giving local children a chance to be active and goof off by providing multiple activities and field day games.
“This is the first ever HERO Olympics, and we want it to be a big success,” Erika McCoy, the president and charter member of VSU HERO, said. “However, it will not be possible without the support from our VSU students, faculty and staff and, of course, the local community.”
This is a great opportunity for VSU and the Valdosta community to join together.
Once the games are over, everyone can indulge themselves in free food and good music.
“People attending the event will just get a chance to experience a good time and the chance to show their competitive side,” McCoy said. “It is just a day of competitive fun.”
Students, faculty and staff should take this opportunity to relax, compete and have fun before taking final exams next week.
The HERO Olympics is a free event and will be taking place in the University Center Magnolia Room this Saturday from 3:30 to 6:00 PM.
To volunteer for the HERO Olympics, meet at the University Center food court on Saturday at 2:30 p.m.
