As NeuroVella INI Foundation Ambassador, it was my pleasure to attend 2012 USA Olympic Team Benefit Gala held in Newport Beach, California on April 18, 2012. To learn more about the exciting NeuroVella Institute of Neuro Innovation that supports the U.S. Olympians and which I am a proud patron of, please click here: http://www.inifoundation.org/
The road to the Olympics requires dedication, grueling training schedules, personal adversity, often injuries, and the support of family and friends. We all have our personal Olympics we are constantly competing in, and taking a moment to realize what it takes to strive to be the best on daily basis made me reach out to people who were always there for me and never doubted my determination and persistence. For that, dear family & friends, I thank you!
I had no idea that unlike other countries, USA Olympic athletes are not supported by the government—they are supported by the private sector, so every little bit counted at this fundraising gala where special concierge packages were auctioned off to experience the 2012 Olympic Games in London first hand! And boy, was that fun!!
Athletes in attendance who won gold and those aspiring to do so this summer included Al Joyner, Jason Lezak, Nate Holland, Amanda Beard and others, as well as many of Southern California’s Olympic hopefuls. What a night to remember!
100 days countdown has started!
