Inaugural National Get Up Day celebrated Feb. 1 U.S. Figure Skating invited people around


the nation on Feb. 1 to participate in the inau- gural National Get Up Day, a celebration of those who embody the Get Up spirit. Offi cially declared by the registrar at National Day Calendar, Nation- al Get Up Day will now be celebrated annually on Feb. 1. The Get Up campaign, launched by U.S.


Figure Skating in Oct. 2016, is a long-term, multiplatform awareness and engagement ini- tiative with the goal of creating a movement that people can relate to, get involved in and stand behind. Among the fi rst things taught in every skating lesson is how to fall down, and more im- portantly, how to get back up again. It’s a lesson all participants can apply across every aspect of their lives. U.S. Figure Skating and people all over the


country participated in the inaugural National Get Up Day by sharing their inspirational stories at WeGetUp.com, on social media using #GetUpDay and by contacting local media outlets with their personal stories or stories of good work done by a friend or organization in their community. 2015 U.S. champion Jason Brown appeared


on NBC’s “Today” show to promote the event and nearly 400 people bolstered the event through Thunderclap.it. The spirit of human resilience echoed across social media among skaters and nonskaters alike with the hashtag #GetUpDay appearing in the top 10 trending topics in the U.S. throughout the day. Home to the U.S. Olympic Committee, U.S.


Figure Skating and dozens of other national governing bodies of sport, the city of Colorado Springs, with the help of 2015 U.S. pairs champi- ons Alexa Scimeca Knierim and Chris Knierim, of- fi cially proclaimed Feb. 1, 2017, as “Get Up Day in Colorado Springs,” to recognize the inspirational spirit of athletes from across America who come to train in “Olympic City USA.” The Get Up campaign will continue to build


momentum leading up to the 2018 Olympic Winter Games in PyeongChang, South Korea, with additional extensions of the program to be announced in the coming months. For more information on National Get Up Day and the Get Up campaign, visit WeGetUp.com.
