Citi #StandForProgress to Support Team USA in Olympic Games

As part of its support of Team USA for the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games, leading global bank Citi debuted Thursday #StandForProgress.

It is a program to ignite a conversation about how people – from world-class athletes to everyday Americans – define progress, set goals and overcome obstacles.

Citi’s #StandForProgress campaign wants to inspire Americans nationwide to set goals alongside America’s elite athletes.

By using #StandForProgress, the public can share the small or big steps they want to take this year or recognize others who support and inspire their efforts – from new jobs to saving up for a vacation to buying a home or starting a new business.

Citi will capture these goals and take them to USA House in Rio to motivate America’s Olympians and Paralympians.

As part of the program, Citi invited six athletes from Team Citi — Olympic Gold Medalists Gabby Douglas, Kerri Walsh Jennings and Nathan Adrian, Paralympic Gold Medalist Rudy Garcia-Tolson, Olympic Hopeful Carlin Isles and Paralympic Hopeful Scout Bassett – to meet students from around the country and explore how they define progress.

The college students were selected from Citi Foundation’s Pathways to Progress, a three-year, $50 million initiative to prepare 100,000 young people for success. The video content will be released on Citi’s YouTube channel throughout the spring and summer.

Supporters can follow all the #StandForProgress videos and the progress of Team Citi’s athletes as they train for Team USA and Rio this summer @Citi on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
