Kelsey H. on behalf, on behalf of the USOC has asked me to post this and I think it's sort or swell. - Tell me what you think?
I hope you are well. I wanted to reach out on behalf of the U.S. Olympic Committee regarding an inspirational video from seventeen year-old swimmer and Olympic qualifier Missy Franklin!
The video, which can be found here, is part of a series of animated athlete videos speaking to how Olympians and Paralympians got to where they are today and who is their “Team Behind the Team” which has debuted in conjunction with the U.S. Olympic Committee’s program “Raise Our Flag” campaign.
Unlike other countries, the United States receives no financial support from the government. It relies on solely on the American people and corporate sponsors to support our Olympic athletes on their path to the Olympics. We hope you’ll join us and lend your support to Team USA’s Raise Our Flag campaign. Here’s how:
- Visit HERE and buy a stitch from now through July 12, 2012. Each $12 stitch directly supports the athletes.
- Every stitch – sharable on Facebook and Twitter – will be honored on the site’s Donor Wall and can be dedicated to a friend, family member or athlete.
With Missy’s recent success at trials, we thought this would be a perfect fit for your audience. We’d love for you to share this video and the new Raise Our Flag campaign with your readers, so they can show their support for Missy and the rest of Team USA as they travel to compete in London in less than a month.
