The Parade of Olympians honoring Olympic Gold Medalist Ashton Eaton on Sunday will feature some local students that could be future professional athletes or Olympians.

 

Heather Vihstadt with the Education Foundation for Bend La Pine Schools says they have asked administrators from each middle and high school to nominate a girl and boy to march in the parade:  "Ashton has publicly thanked the organization for support, because he was a beneficiary himself and it helped him on his journey and his path and I know that he's very much about inspiring young kids and so we thought, what better way to do that than involve them in the parade."

 

Vihstadt says the foundation is focused on providing means for students who, because of finances would not be able to participate in after school activities.

 

The Parade of Olympians is this Sunday at 1 p.m. in downtown Bend.  After the parade, there will be an opportunity to meet Ashton Eaton.
