Becoming an olympian is not something you do alone. You have a team behind you cheering you on…you have a mom behind you. She picks you up when you fall and is cheering the loudest when you win. She’s there to wipe every drip of sweat, and every tear drop. It’s not easy to become an olympian, and being the mom behind the olympian is no easy feat either. Early mornings heading to practice before school starts. Cooking special meals throughout the day, then late nights rubbing the aches and pains away, and making sure uniforms are clean for morning.
Kim Theisen is one of those mothers. “I did my best to be there for Brianne so that she could dedicate herself to the sport she loved. I relied on quality products for my family and taught Brianne to do the same.”
Her daughter, Brianne Theisen-Eaton, is an Olympian from London 2012. She holds the Canadian record for the indoor pentathlon with a score of 4768 points, and competes in the heptathlon and women’s pentathlon.
P&G’s #ThankYouMom campaign is about giving athletes an opportunity to thank their biggest champions – their moms. As a proud sponsor of moms, P&G products are used and trusted by moms every day so moms can focus on supporting their children.
This year, P&G has partnered with Athletics Canada to provide members of their team competing at the upcoming Pan Am and Parapan Am Games in Toronto and their moms an assortment of P&G products from brands like Tide, Bounty, Pantene and Gillette.
To learn more, please join us for the #ThankYouMom Twitter Chat on Monday, June 22 at 8pm EDT.
We’ll be joined by very special guest Brianne Theisen-Eaton (@btheiseneaton), who’ll share her own experiences and examples of her mom’s support and selflessness throughout the years.
“I was honoured when P&G approached me to become involved in the Thank You Mom program,” says Theisen-Eaton. “This program gives me a chance to shine the spotlight on my mom – one of my biggest champions.”
To thank you for participating, we’ll be giving away over $1,150 in Walmart Gift Cards and P&G products. You won’t want to miss this chat! RSVP below for a chance to win, and we’ll see you on Monday night.
