World Athletics Championships Budapest 23 are also popular with kids.
On May 7, 2023, the world comes together to celebrate the importance of physical activity and athletics for children and young people. This day is dedicated to promoting healthy lifestyles, encouraging physical activity, and celebrating the achievements of children and young people in athletics.
The Global Kids' Athletics Day is a worldwide initiative that seeks to raise awareness about the importance of physical activity and its role in promoting health and well-being in children and young people. The day provides an opportunity for children and young people to come together, have fun, and participate in athletics activities.
As the organisers of the World Athletics Championships Budapest 2023, we are not only aiming to stage a fantastic showcase in August. Our main goal is to create a lasting impact and legacy by moving the nation, by inspiring children and young people to embrace an active lifestyle. We have launched the Schoolhero program throughout Hungary as part of our promotional campaign. For pupils and teachers in public schools, we are offering exciting ways to get as many pupils as possible to watch the superheroes live at the World Champs.
Through our programs, we hope to encourage children and young people to become more physically active and to develop a lifelong love of sports. We believe that by promoting healthy lifestyles and sports participation at a young age, we can help to create a healthier and more active global community.
"We are excited to be part of this global initiative to promote healthy lifestyles and physical activity among children and young people," said Balázs Németh, CEO of Budapest 2023 Nzrt, the company responsible for organising the event. „The Schoolhero programme is our heart and soul, it has everything to make a World Athletics Championships worthwhile. We're moving the country, getting kids to love athletics and inspiring everyone to play sport and live a healthier life through a fantastic sporting experience - that's our primary mission through the World Championships."
The Global Kids' Athletics Day is a unique opportunity for children and young people worldwide to celebrate their love of sports and physical activity. It is also a reminder of the importance of physical activity in promoting health, well-being, and academic success. Join us today and let's celebrate the achievements of children and young people in athletics worldwide.
