Win an autographed copy of one of Laurie’s books, personally inscribed to you!

Win an autographed copy of one of Laurie’s books, personally inscribed to you!

Just before mounting the beam at the Rio Olympics, Laurie Hernandez whispered to herself, “I got this.” A TV camera captured the moment, and made it immortal. She then nailed the exercise, helping the Final 5 win gold in the all-around.

Laurie has written a book about her life, and used the phrase that she helped make famous in the title: I Got This: To Gold and Beyond.

AND…

Even Olympians have to start somewhere. And in this charming illustrated book, Laurie Hernandez tells the story of Zoe, a little girl who dreams of flying—and becoming a gymnast.

When Zoe sees a gymnast on TV, she realizes that gymnastics is just like flying. But when she first goes to class and falls off the balance beam, she discovers that following her dreams is harder and scarier than she thought.

Through this heartwarming and inspirational story Laurie imparts important lessons she learned on her way to Olympic glory: You always have to get back up and try again, and you always have to believe in yourself.

How would you like to win an autographed copy of one of Laurie’s books, personally inscribed to you?

EVERYONE raising $100 between Sunday, October 21 and 11:59 pm Thursday, October 25 the book is yours when Laurie visits! Online donations only.

And, make sure a family member is close by with a camera, to capture a shot of Laurie signing your book, next to you!

PLUS: The TOP 2 overall fundraisers during this contest win a video shout out with Laurie! You and Laurie will make a fun video on your phone!
