PRESS RELEASE by the Worldwide Hip Hop Congress & Olympian “Marilyn King”

EXCERPT: On the heels of the 2008 Beijing Olympics, there’s more going on than just sports and protesting. Two Pentathlon, Olympian, Marilyn King is utilizing this historic moment to deliver the message that everyone can ‘live Olympic.’ “We are going to deliver to young people the tools they need to make their individual and collective dreams come true.” A framework called Olympian Thinking focuses on the three factors present when ordinary people do extraordinary things. Marilyn says every Olympian and all successful people align the power that comes from Passion, the art and science of Vision and a commitment to daily Action.

Holding true to this concept, Marilyn is teaming with worldwide 501(c) 3 non-profit Hip Hop Congress which houses its national office in San Jose, California. The Hip Hop Congress provides the Hip Hop Generation and the Post Hip Hop Generation with the tools, resources and opportunities to make social, economic and political change on a local, regional and national level.
