Dads get ready to become Olympians

Staff writer

Marion County dads might want to start training to take up the Olympic torch now, or at least do a little stretching

“Daddy Olympics” will be from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Saturday at Marion Sports and Aquatic Center.

“It will be a fun-filled come-and-go morning for men and children,” Head Start family advocate Elaine Ewert said.

Dad’s will have plenty of opportunities to chase after, play with, and challenge their little athletes.

The event will feature free swimming, an indoor playground, slides, basketball, bowling, a ball pit, soccer, bobsleds, a baby crawling and climbing area, snacks, and more.

The annual free event is for dads and children from birth to 5 years old, and is sponsored by Marion County Parents as Teachers and Marion County Head Start.
