INDIANAPOLIS, March 28, 2013 – 2012 Olympian and reigning U.S. champion John Orozco of the Bronx, N.Y./U.S. Olympic Training Center, will participate in The 2013 White House Easter Egg Roll, which takes place on the South Lawn of the White House on April 1. The Easter Egg Roll is focused on promoting health and wellness with the theme, "Be Healthy, Be Active, Be You!" The event will feature live music, sports courts, cooking stations, storytelling and, of course, Easter egg rolling. The activities will encourage children to lead healthy, active lives in support of the First Lady's Let's Move! initiative.

This will be the 135th annual White House Easter Egg Roll with more than 30,000 people visiting the South Lawn for games, stories, and, of course, the traditional egg roll. Souvenir White House Easter eggs first became an annual keepsake in 1981, when President and Mrs. Ronald Reagan hosted a hunt for wooden eggs that bore the signatures of famous people. The tradition continues this year with four colorful eggs and the official First Dog "Bo" egg. These collector's eggs are available to view or purchase at www.easter.nationalparks.org. Watch First Dog Bo search for this year's eggs.
