I don’t plan to be inspired. But it does just happen….as is the case with ParaOlympian, Caitlin Sarubbi. How else to describe a young woman who has overcome all odds to become a member of the US Adaptive Ski Team? Caitie is visually impaired, skis with a guide and qualified for FIVE alpine events in Vancouver.
By now you have likely smiled at the many US Olympic victories, teared up as the athletes embraced their families and possibly shed crocodile tears as you watched dreams fall short (or as you witnessed one of Procter & Gamble’s Olympic commercials). Prepare to feel some more of that magical Olympic emotion as you watch our inaugural BlissTV episode highlighting the P&G Thank you Mom Campaign and Contest. I am proud to be a part of this project – and even more proud of the beautiful women in this video who share their love for the special moms in their lives.
Last night, Julie Chu and the US Women’s Hockey team won the silver medal. Julie was one of the most energetic and gracious athletes I had the privilege of meeting….
I was fortunate enough to spend the past week at the Procter & Gamble Family Home in Vancouver – covering the Olympic Games. By far, one of my biggest takeaways is the success of the Thank you, Mom Campaign – here are some of the highlights.
Thank you to Procter & Gamble for this Olympic Games Experience.
Up next: My interview with speed skater Allison Baver and her mom, Dixie.
Every day I love my job – as a mom, as a blogger, as a vlogger, as someone who loves social media. But sometimes something special happens – this interview is part of that special journey to the Olympic Games.
Visit Noelle Pikus-Pace to learn more about the woman, the athlete, the mother.
And keep an eye out for her on Thursday when she competes.
