Growing up, I remember getting really excited about the Olympics. I think my earliest memories of the Olympics were from when I was in grade 4. We had a project on the Winter Olympics and I watched TV religiously, cheering on and supporting Canada’s athletes. We had a class project and had to research and write about the history of the Olympic Games, some of the events/sports, and athletes. I actually still have that duo-tang with all my hard work, research, newspaper clippings, and drawings.
There is something that gets me all choked up watching as our Canadian athletes represent our country and bring back the gold (or silver, bronze, or even just giving it their all). One of the most exciting things is cheering on our athletes.
To celebrate the hard work, dedication, and perseverance, General Mills has launched an inspiring Cheer Campaign to empower everyone! Carry the message of our great nation by sporting Cheer gear! Not only are these items fun, but they’re also FREE! Cool, fun, and FREE t-shirts and flip flops with the purchase of selected General Mills snacks and cereal.
As a #LMDConnector, I received my Cheer gear! I got some very cool, patriotic flip flops and my favourite…Multi-Grain Cheerios! Hubby loves the Honey Nut Cheerios, and Little One alternates between the two. I was sent a specially marked box of Multi-Grain Cheerios, which I was able to use to order my Olympics 2012 t-shirt.
Do you watch the Olympics? Who will you be cheering for? I know I’ll be wearing my flip flops and Hubby will be wearing the t-shirt as we show our support for Alexandre Despatie, Benoit Huot, and the rest of our amazing athletes who represent Canada in the 2012 Olympic Games.
