Athletes for Hope

Athletes Spread the #Unselfie Spirit

Yael 21

Every year on the anniversary of the September 11th attacks, AFH Athletes show their support for local organizations by volunteering; however, many of our members are unable to give back during that time due to scheduling conflicts. This year, along with the regular in-person visit, we added another way to show support – the #unselfie.

The #unselfie is like the popular “selfie” but with a purpose – these aren’t just self-taken photos, they are photos that amplify the good work of the many organizations our athletes support. We had a lot of fun reading and retweeting these messages of hope. Thank you to all the hundreds athletes and fans that participated in the #unselfie campaign this year.
