When I participated in the Susan G. Komen 3 Day for the Cure event last October as the Energizer Keep Going Blogger, I met many wonderful people who exemplified the Energizer Bunny's Keep Going® spirit. From crew members who woke up at 4AM every day to walkers who raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to breast cancer survivors who fought a horrible disease, these people are ordinary people like you and me who just don't know what it means to give up, and they are an inspiration to us all.
I'm sure you know a few people like that yourself -- and now is your chance to let everyone else recognize and applaud their Keep Going® spirit. Energizer is teaming up with Baseball Hall of Famer Cal Ripken, Jr. to find the next Inductee into the Energizer Keep Going® Hall of Fame. Anyone can nominate themselves or someone they know at
Ten finalists will be selected and awarded a $1,000 donation to a charity of their choice, as well as a Flip camcorder to help in their campaign efforts to become the 2011 Energizer Keep Going® Hall of Fame Inductee. The Inductee is then chosen by an online public vote, receiving a $10,000 cash prize and a $5,000 donation to his or her favorite charity. Plus, he or she will be honored at a special awards ceremony hosted by Energizer Keep Going® Hall of Fame Honorary Inductee, Cal Ripken, Jr.
Here's more information about the program:
Energizer is currently seeking people with unwavering determination, an energetic spirit and the drive to make a difference to join Baseball Hall of Famer Cal Ripken, Jr. and others recognized for their unstoppable energy in the Energizer Keep Going® Hall of Fame.
We all know someone who's persevered and made a positive impact. It could be a friend who's overcome the odds and kept going when the chips were down. It could be a relative who stuck to their dreams when no one else thought they had a chance. Or just someone whose simple act created a positive change in his community. Just like the Energizer Bunny®, they never give up. That person could be your sister, your best friend, your son, daughter, or even you!
From now through Feb. 4, 2011, people are invited to enter their own personal stories or nominate someone they know online at www.energizer.com/halloffame. Just like America’s non-stop icon, the Energizer Bunny®, nominees should embody the Keep Going® spirit by making a positive impact on the world through extraordinary determination and courage. Cal Ripken, Jr., who became the first member of the Energizer Keep Going® Hall of Fame six years ago, is once again helping lead the search for the next Inductee.
It’s all a part of Energizer’s Now That's Positivenergy™ campaign to help everyday citizens channel their power to make a positive impact, whether it be in their local community or around the world -- and you could be a part of it!
