AFH Athlete, Chris Waddell, participated in several Let’s Move events this month first as the keynote speaker for the Let’s Move! Active Schools general session at the 2016 SHAPE America Convention and Expo. Chris addressed a packed house of PE teachers and physical fitness advocates at the Minneapolis Convention Center. The crowd loved Chris’ core message: It’s not what happens to you. It’s what you do with what happens to you. Prior to Chris’ speech’, Chris was taped for the SHAPE America podcast that reaches thousands of other health and physical educators.

Chris found time to visit a Let’s Move Active Schools school during the conference. He shared his story and powerful message to approximately 100 students at Newport Elementary School. Chris motivated the kids to do well on their upcoming state tests.

We are grateful for Chris’ continued involvement in Athletes for Hope!
