We're happy to announce that we're working together with Apolo Anton Ohno again, as he brings his book tour to the East Coast!
His book, Zero Regrets, outlines his journey from growing up in Seattle, WA to becoming the most decorated U.S. Winter Olympian in history. In the book, he discusses the choices he faced during his journey.
“The decisions I made as a young teen heavily influenced where I am today. In fact, many of the decisions I've made off-the-ice have contributed most to my success.”
We'll be joining up with Apolo for his stops in the cities below. Read more to get more information about his event in your hometown and how you can get the chance to see him!More > 0 Comments
Don't let Halloween night get seriously scary by following these tips with your little Trick-or-treaters!
*Set up a route with your kids and know where they're going if you won't be with them
*Set a curfew for your kids so they won't cause trouble or get into trouble. Most people will stop answering their door to trick-or-treaters at a certain time anyway.
*Make sure your kids know not to accept a ride or enter the house of strangers.
*Eat dinner with your kids before they go out so they'll have energy to run from house to house and not only eat candy for the evening.
*If your child is wearing all dark colors, it's a good idea for them to carry a flashlight or wear something reflective or glowing.
*If you are driving on Halloween night, be extra careful to watch for kids running around, not only at crosswalks and intersections.
*Tell your kids not to eat any home-made treats until they get home so you can check them out.
*To prepare your home for trick-or-treaters, remove any obstacles in the yard/driveway/sidewalk and have your lights on.
*Make sure costumes are flame-resistant, easily visible and well fitted so they won't trip.
*Place carved pumpkins on sturdy ground away from where children stand or flammable decorations.More > 0 Comments
