With just over three months to go until the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, Procter & Gamble (P&G) is shining a spotlight on the moms behind our Canadian athletes. The company recently announced its sponsorship of 12 Olympic and Paralympic hopefuls as we gear up for the 2014 Winter Games.
Yesterday, P&G announced the launch of the ‘Thank You Mom’ campaign worldwide, which includes launching 28 ‘Raising an Olympian’ videos. The videos pay tribute to the athletes as they prepare for the Games and acknowledge the contributions of moms who have been there every step of the way.
Canadian athletes profiled include defending Olympic gold medalist, Jon Montgomery and his mom, Joan, as well as Greg Westlake (the first Paralympic athlete to be featured in P&G Canada’s ‘Raising an Olympian’ series), and his mother, Deb. Here’s a link to a few videos of some remarkable athletes and the amazing moms behind them: www.pg.ca/moms.
P&G also recently announced a four-year partnership with Hockey Canada. The company will provide support to all levels of hockey in Canada by supplying teams with its products and sponsoring events such as the National Women’s Under-18 Championship, World Sledge Hockey Challenge and World Under-17 Hockey Challenge.
