Draper’s Jeremy Holm will continue his efforts for his Day of Champions Foundation which supports student athletes, coaches and parents both in and out of the sporting arena. With the upcoming Olympics, he is aiming to visit one school a day — elementary, junior high, high schools or colleges — during the 2018 Winter Olympic Games from Feb. 9 through 25 and the Paralympic Games from March 8 through 18. The American bobsledder will bring an athlete or two and tell their stories and share motivational messages about goal setting, encouragement and any social issues the schools would like addressed.
“We are always trying to reach out with our messages and encourage everyone we talk to,” Holm said. “Doing this during the Olympics will give us an opportunity as well to help spread the excitement of the games as they are happening.”

Holm is also a published author with two books. His first, “The Champion’s Way,” teaches principles of success, and “Fire On Ice” shares experiences and life lessons from Holm’s career in bobsledding.
