Apolo Anton Ohno joined The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility for two events yesterday, one at Arlington Science Focus Elementary School in Arlington, VA and one at Dwight D Eisenhower Middle School in Laurel, MD.
We started off the day at Arlington Science Focus Elementary School. Joined by US Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, Apolo ran the kids through the basics of our Ask, Listen, Learn interactive activity. Then the kids got their turn. We had a great time with the kids of Arlington Science Focus Elementary School – fantastic kids, and we sure hope they’ll continue to say “YES” to a healthy lifestyle and “NO” to underage drinking.
That afternoon, we headed to Dwight D Eisenhower Middle School in Laurel, MD. The kids here were a bit older, but just as enthusiastic. We’d like to send a special thank you to the office of House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer and his staff for helping to arrange the visit! Check out pictures from the event below!
