Gatorade's BECOME Campaign and Giveaway

One of the highlights of my trip to BlogHer 11 in San Diego was attending the Gatorade event and meeting Sarah Robb O'Hagan, President of Gatorade, Loreane Tomlinson, LaDainian Tomlinson's mom, Leslie Bonci, Pittsburgh Steelers nutritionist/dietician and Brandi Chastain, professional American soccer player.

During this very informative session, they all spoke about the importance of participating in sports and its positive impact on children's health and overall development. I also learned about Gatorade's BECOME Campaign. Gatorade and the Women's Sports Foundation are looking for moms to take the pledge to support young athletes on their quest to BECOME.

When you take the Pledge:
  • Gatorade will donate $1.00 up to $10,000 to the Women's Sports Foundation for every pledge received at in support of girls' and women's sports.
  • Click "take the pledge now" on the main Gatorade Moms page.
  • The donation will help ensure there are opportunities for all children who want to get physically active, get involved in competitive athletics, and get in the game.
I have taken the Pledge and I'm calling on you to do the same. Help spread the word about Gatorade's BECOME Campaign!

Gatorade's reps have offered to send one of my readers a soccer ball autographed by Brandi Chastain.
