Olympic Gold Medalist Ashton Eaton is coming to Bend.

 

Sunday, September 23rd will be a big day in downtown Bend, as the city is rolling out the red carpet to honor Ashton’s accomplishments.

 

His mother, Roz says Ashton is very excited about coming home.  "We would like to thank everyone for their support and I’m so happy that this parade is going to allow Ashton, at the end of it, to address the city and to thank everyone for the support they've given him, and to encourage all the children as well to just go for their dreams, no matter what they are."

 

Right now, the "Parade of Olympians" is Sunday, September 23rd in downtown Bend and it will also feature many other Olympians who live in the area.

 

There will also be an opportunity for kids to do a "fun run" with Ashton after the parade, and he will sign autographs.

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
