Transforming lives of young Angelenos through support and encouragement from Olympians and Paralympians
Los Angeles, California – February 27, 2012 – The Southern California Committee for the Olympic Games today announced Samsung’s support of the Ready, Set, Gold! (RSG!) program in the Los Angeles Unified School District.

RSG! is a legacy program of the Los Angeles bid for the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games and is designed to motivate children to set and reach their goals, primarily in the areas of health and fitness in order to combat childhood obesity and diabetes. The program combines the excitement of the Olympics, the importance of goal setting and true American heroes – Olympians and Paralympians.

“By teaching our children goal-setting skills, RSG! not only advances their health and fitness scores but their academic skills as well,” Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said. “It is an example of how interactive education with a focus on the future can help Los Angeles youth become gold-medal students.”
