The city of Irving joins community members celebrating Never Give Up Day on August 18th, 2022, and calls upon its citizens to make this day a springboard for awareness raising actions. Never Give Up Day is a global celebration day focused on cultivating a mindset of determination. The day encourages awareness-raising activities, (sports)events, run/walk for charity, workshops and community programs. Health care and social associations, organizations and charities can initiate their call to action and fundraising events. All in all, Never Give Up Day provides a common platform for individuals and professionals to use their imagination and judgment to innovate to inspire.
"Never Give Up Day is a life changing campaign that contributes positively to the city and its residents. No matter what cause or charity the city's many associations represent, every mission is directly or tangentially related to Never Give Up Day."
The day not only applauds people for reaching their goals, but also supports those who are still trying to achieve their goals. Most importantly, the countless stories and testimonials from those who faced incredible odds, but nonetheless refused to give up, showcase the impactful resilience and determination in our community.
Never Give Up Day was first observed in 2019. However, it was not until 2021, 3 years after Never Give Up Day was founded, that US city mayors approved to proclaim August 18th as Never Give Up Day, making this day a nationwide celebration day.
Babe Ruth's saying suits best for this day: "You can't beat the person who never gives up."
Never Give Up Day was created for the hero in all of us
