Sunday night, Apolo Ohno and The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility were at Joseph-Beth Booksellers in Pittsburgh PA. Apolo was promoting his book, Zero Regrets, and also spoke to a group of kids about making healthy choices in life and saying no to underage drinking.
Apolo Ohno shared his message with 12 kids from The Beverly Jewel Wall Lovelace Children's Program, which promotes children's safety and well-being within their community. The kids were full of question for Apolo, ranging from his upbringing as a young kid to becoming an Olympic medalist. Apolo answered them all and left the kids with autographed books and Ask, Listen, Learn bookmarks!
The kids have an extra incentive to read through the book; They're having an essay contest based on the book, and the winner will receive a prize! Good luck kids of BJWL!
