As the Olympics approach, there are the big “news” stories about Michael Phelps or Usain Bolt – flashy names that are striving for records. But there are more stories than just those “headliners.” There are also stories of “normal” people like you and me. People who have faced and overcome challenges as they work to achieve the Olympic dream.
One of those people is Lolo Jones. Lolo Jones grew up in a single-parent household, moving from school to school while her mother worked two jobs to support her large family. Through the hardwork and determination instilled by her mother, Lolo graduated college and began her career in track. After missing Olympic gold in Beijing, Lolo’s determination iss stronger than ever to win that coveted metal. Lolo, in parternship with P&G, is donating $25,000 on behalf of Family Dollar to the P&G Team USA Sports Fund. Team sports is a great way to help young kids develop camaraderie and teamwork towards achieving goals.
To learn more about Lolo and her inspiring journey of overcoming obstacles (and literal hurdles) and becoming a world champion, visit www.followlolorun.com. While you’re there, you can also enter for your chance to win a 42″ Panasonic TV so you can watch the upcoming Olympics on the big screen. Make sure you head over to your local Family Dollar store, where you can pick up many of your favorite P&G products without stretching your budget.
