Wcnc-logoHickory – NBC Charlotte is broadcasting the local region’s Olympic spirit! Friday, August 12, from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m., NBC Charlotte’s Rio Rally will air live in Downtown Hickory at The Sails on the Square. Hickory is one of 11 cities chosen to be on this pep rally tour to support the Rio Olympics.

NBC Charlotte will have a local cycling team from a college near Hickory, and they have invited Boyscout Troop 250.  They will be doing some physical fitness with Hannah Welker live on air.  Both groups exhibit hard work and dedication, which is exactly what being an Olympian is all about.

The public is encouraged to attend this event and cheer on Team USA from Hickory, NC.
