From Energizer: Anyone who has participated in a test of endurance knows that the support and encouragement you get can put a bounce in your step and give you the inspiration to reach your goals. Energizer has found a way to turn up the volume on the celebration of this never-quit spirit by selecting bloggers across the nation to blog about their journey as they train and participate in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure®, an event where participants commit to walking 60 miles over the course of three days to raise funds for breast cancer research.
Tésa Nicolanti, author of the blog 2 Wired 2 Tired, has been selected as the Energizer Keep Going® Blogger for the Cleveland event, being held on July 30-Aug. 1. Nicolanti, whose determination and positive spirit shines through in her blog at www.2wired2tired.com, has already gotten started on both her blogging and her training.
"I am passionate about finding a cure for breast cancer, as my aunt lost her battle with this disease nearly nine years ago," said Nicolanti. "I hope that reading about my journey preparing and participating in the 3-Day for the Cure will inspire more and more people to support this cause and walk in these events. The fight doesn't stop until we have a cure!"
Continues after the jump.
As the 2010 Presenting Sponsor and Official Battery of the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure, Energizer combed the nation looking for bloggers who could spread the word and inspire others to get involved and make it all the way. The 15 Energizer Keep Going Bloggers - one per hosting city - will blog about their successes and challenges as they train.
Jim Olsen, Energizer Vice President of Marketing for North America, says Tésa and other bloggers are great role models for participants at the events, which Energizer is sponsoring for the second year. "We look forward to following the Keep Going Bloggers as they work hard to train and participate in their city's event," said Olsen. "We hope that learning about the lives of the bloggers, like Tésa, and monitoring their progress will encourage even more people to participate in these important and meaningful events."
2 Wired 2 Tired traces Nicolanti's life as a mother to two preschool-aged children, and will now incorporate her energy, fun and optimism as she shares her experiences training and walking in the 3-Day for the Cure. In addition to blogging on 2 Wired 2 Tired, she contributes to the blog section of Cleveland.com and works as a freelance writer.
