International Day of Sport for Development and Peace
On August 23, 2013, the the United Nations General Assembly decided to proclaim April 6 as the International Day of Sport for Development and Peace. The mission is to place sport at the service of humankind and promote a peaceful society and healthy lifestyles by associating sport with culture and education and safeguarding human dignity without any discrimination whatsoever.
National Student-Athlete Day
National Student-Athlete Day is generally recognized April 6 nationwide, but can be celebrated throughout the months of March and April at NCAA colleges and universities. The day recognizes the accomplishments of student-athletes who excel in the classroom, on the playing fields, and who give back to their community through service projects.
