Apolo Ohno has been one of the most vocal and supportive proponents of our Ask, Listen, Learn program. He as traveled across the country, visiting countless schools in order to teach kids the importance of a healthy, active lifestyle, and how important the choices you make are, even at an early age.

Through his work with The Foundation for Advancing Alcohol Responsibility, Apolo has reached thousands if not tens of thousands of kids. He’s lit up classrooms, inspiring kids with his enthusiasm and with his story.

That’s why we’re very proud to honor Apolo as one of our 20 People to Watch. It’s an honor he undoubtedly deserves.
