If you’ve always wanted to be part of the Olympics, then don’t miss out on a big event schedule for Boise this Wednesday evening. 


Everyone is invited here to celebrate Olympic spirit and international sport in Idaho. You can do so by participating in two events being held in downtown Boise on Wednesday: the Walk to London 2012, and the 2012 Exergy Tour ladies pro bike race official team presentation and Olympic celebration.

Both events are free and open to the public.

Walk to London 2012 events are organized and led by the Olympians and Paralympians who make up the 20 national Olympian Alumni Chapters.

The 1.13-mile Boise walk will start on the Greenbelt at 13th street and finish in the Boise Grove Plaza as part of a large Olympic celebration ,including the official team presentation event for the inaugural 2012 Exergy Tour.
