Meeting Olympian Julie Chu & Bounty Hockey Moms Recipes

By February 28, 2014 , ,

It's not everyday you get to meet Julie Chu, Three-Time Olympic Medalist and Women's Ice Hockey player! But I did during an event hosted by Bounty to celebrate Hockey Moms.

Note: I was invited as media to this event. Any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

Just before the 2014 Olympic Winter Games, Bounty paper towels joined forces with Olympic Women’s Ice Hockey player, Julie Chu and her mother, Miriam, to launched their “Bring It” Campaign which encouraged sports moms everywhere to share how their aspiring athlete trains in the home - despite the mess - using the hashtag “#BringIt”.

For every story shared with @Bounty using the hashtag, Bounty donated one dollar to the P&G Team USA Youth Sports Fund to help other aspiring athletes achieve their dreams.

They also hosted a dinner celebrating the moms that embrace the mess while raising an aspiring athlete. At the event the hockey moms shared keeping their athletes inspired and how they manage their home life around their child's sports life.

How these moms managed early morning practices, broken windows and driving to and from games was amazing to me. Not only did they do all of that but they also had time to cook! The moms also generously shared a few Bounty #BringIt Recipe's for Fueling an Olympian!
